"There are 3823 pubs in London, but some of the most charming are tucked away, out of sight. This is a great opportunity to not only discover some beautiful pubs, but also a part of London which is all too often overlooked. This leisurely bike ride from Putney to Kew stops off at some of the capital's most tranquil riverside pubs, where you can try the finest ales in the land. And you might even find time to visit the world-famous Kew Botanical Gardens after the tour."

Customer Reviews

"We did the beer and bike tour for a friend's birthday present. Ginette was fabulous and the day was great fun, a bit of easy cycling (we averaged 5mph) along the river, some very nice pubs, and ale tasting as well as stops to hear about local history and discover places we never knew existed so close to our home in Twickenham! We will definitely be coming back for more!" Anonymous
