Programma

Master the art of riding these splendid machines on a tour through Westminster in central London. After meeting us at London Scottish House, 95 Horseferry Road, Westminster, SW1P 2DX, we will introduce you to the Penny Farthing bicycle, provide you with your equipment including helmets and let you know what you will be doing during the experience. Then we will head out onto the streets where you will learn to safely mount, ride and dismount.

Keen to ride more? After a short coffee break, we will head out on a leisurely guided journey around the Westminster area, past many iconic locations such as the Palace of Westminster, Parliament Square, Churchill War Rooms, the gardens of 10 Downing Street and Buckingham Palace. After a short photo stop we will then roll on back to London Scottish House and return to the present day!

Other things to note
You must be at least 5ft 3in (160 cm) tall, weigh less than 100 kgs (220 Lbs) and be in good physical shape. It helps if guests are already competent and confident bike riders in city environments.

This experience was worth every farthing. As a longtime (but distant) penny-farthing enthusiast, I was excited to give this a try, but convinced I’d be unable to ride through the streets. I had no need to be worried because Neil is a phenomenal instructor and gave us ample time to practice with his assistance before we set off outdoors. I’m not the most coordinated person, but I felt comfortable and confident because of the amount of practice time. It looks scarier than it is! If you’re hesitant, give it a try. It was also an incredibly unique way to tour through London. We stopped in front of Buckingham for some pictures and became the main tourist attraction for a few minutes. If you’re looking for a once in a lifetime experience to push you a little outside of your comfort zone or an experience for great photo ops or to make all of your friends and family jealous, I couldn’t recommend Neil’s penny-farthing tour any higher.

Just a great fun experience! Just the right balance of being challenging and achievable. Unexpected celebrity status when cruising the streets of London.
