"Possibly the closest thing you can get to time travel, cycle along London’s ancient and winding streets on a classic 1920s British Pashley bicycle and discover the city’s humble beginnings. Highlights include hidden inner city canals, the remains of the original Roman wall and the old shipping docks that welcomed goods from around the world and the riverside pub (think creaky floors and low ceilings) where smugglers and pirates once met a grizzly end. You'll even see the noose they once used!"
