"Almost every visitor to the capital spends time in South-west London - but only because it's home to Heathrow Airport. Those that do take the time to explore it properly are rewarded with quite a revelation. This fantastic cycling tour, perfect for all abilities, takes you down a leafy, peaceful path through an 800 year-old market town, from Richmond to Hampton Court Palace. This grand residence - built in 1515 and boasting over 1000 rooms - was once home to Henry VIII. Don't miss the chance to visit the oldest hedge maze in England while you're there..."
