"London is just like Mary Poppins’ bag. There’s always something else in there," said my exuberant and thoroughly English guide, a chap in a flat cap and cravat, as we set off on a classic British-made bike. This isn’t your average sightseeing bike ride. Oh no. This one encompasses age-old tradition alongside modern day Britain at its most innovative.

Perfect for first-time visitors.
