Windsor Castle/Hampton Court cycle tour review

Do I need to be a good cyclist?
No you definitely do not. You don’t even need to be experienced at all on two wheels. Provided you can actually stay upright on your machine, then this is the ideal country idyll for you.
First, the bike is provided and is a comfortable classic model, easy to ride, stable without being too heavy, with a nice comfy padded seat – you won’t get saddle sore on this one.
Second, the ride is seven or eight miles, which on two wheels is a breeze, over flat terrain, mostly traffic free so there’s no danger from other vehicles.
Third, your party of about a dozen will have an experienced guide and helper in charge, who will give you the encouragement you need, join in the chat and explain the sights you’re passing.
and fourth, a cycle helmet is provided for the safety conscious, but is optional.

Do I have to ride all the way to Windsor or Hampton Court?
Certainly not!
Both these experiences start at a central London railway station, where you receive your tickets and depart by train to the starting point of your ride.
On the Windsor Castle bike tour, you’ll get off the train at Windsor, collect your bicycle (and helmet if you want one) and breeze through the surroundings of Windsor and Eton, past the Olympic rowing lake, through the stunning picturesque village of Dorney, before arriving at Windsor Castle itself where admission is included to let you spend the afternoon exploring this most ancient and famous of castles.
On the Hampton Court bike ride your train will take you to Richmond from where your tour will be along the banks of the wonderful Thames, past historic Ham House, before reaching Hampton Court around lunchtime. Then the afternoon is yours to spend at leisure exploring Hampton Court and its grounds, with full admission included.

In both cases, return rail to central London is of course included.

We found that the party of cyclists made for a wonderful group experience, and we made some good friends as we pedalled easily along together chatting and admiring the views. And the group leader was fantastic, full of fascinating information about everything we passed on the way.
There was also a good mixture of ages, from teens to more mature, which was nice, and the leisurely pace of the tour made it a really enjoyable day.
We found that most people, having done one of these cycle tours were keen to do the other one too – they really are that much fun.
And the nice thing is that they’re ideal for couples, singles and family groups alike – though be aware that there’s a minimum age of 14, so it’s really an adult experience.

Be warned, if you’re after a Tour de France, or a hard cycle training ride, this is NOT for you.
The route is safe, easy and short, the pace is leisurely, stops are frequent, and the emphasis is on sociability and sightseeing rather than pushing on and setting course records.

But if you’re after an easy, friendly jaunt through wonderful countryside with a bunch of great people, ending up at one of England’s premier historic buildings, then with either the Windsor Castle bike tour or the Hampton Court cycle tour, you’ll have the time of your life.
And when you’ve been, please feel free to come back here and tell us how you got on to give others the benefit of your experience. Everyone we’ve talked to who’s done this fabulous leisure experience gives it five stars for originality, enjoyment and just sheer pleasure, and we’re sure you will too.

This leisurely guided tour would make an ideal gift for birthdays or special days, or how about an original anniversary present where you give two of these to the happy couple to celebrate their special day in brilliant company seeing some of the country’s best sights?
