Our all-new family cycling tours have so much to offer the whole family. Packed with heritage, outdoors activities and plenty of fun, Pedal England has designed bespoke tours focusing on Britain’s most celebrated cultural venues. The tours give you a chance to experience Windsor, Oxford, Bath and Stonehenge as well as the natural beauty of the rolling Cotswolds.
And we’ve made sure that there is something for all ages to enjoy – from splashing about at water parks to exploring ancient castles, it’s an unforgettable family vacation with a difference.
Britain is famous for its wealth of culture and heritage, and on our family tours we’ve organized activities that make history come alive. With visits to places that are educational, enjoyable and really bring the family together.
Places such as the stately Blenheim palace, crammed with history but also sporting the pleasure gardens with a maze, butterfly farm and miniature train. Then there is the Ancient Roman Spa in Bath, historically fascinating and offering the chance to dress up like a Roman! And the Great battlements of Windsor Castle will have you all re-enacting knightly adventures.
But the activities aren’t all about exploring our heritage, other family-friendly activities include the Windrush valley and river and there is also the Cotswold Water Park – so don’t forget to pack your swimsuits.
And for all those literary fans we have added a Harry Potter walking tour in Oxford, which features locations from the hit movies. And there is the Jane Austen museum in Bath.
We have carefully adapted our Classic Cycle Tour with the needs of younger cyclists in mind. By choosing quieter roads and adding more off-road cycle paths we’ve made the route far safer for less experienced cyclists. Our family tours also cover fewer miles per day – so that your little ones have plenty of energy left to enjoy all the excursions we have in store for them.
And we’ve added new activities with a special focus on family fun. Pedal England gives your family the opportunity to discover how enjoyable our country’s heritage can be.
We’ve selected quieter routes and cycle paths to make a more child-friendly tour. With safety in mind we have set the minimum age at eight years old, your child must be able to ride a bike confidently and have road safety awareness.
Pedal England tours aren’t just about cycling, and although you’ll experience some amazing bicycling with us we’ve also thought hard about food and accommodation. We know that when you’re traveling with a family a good meal and a proper night’s sleeps can make or break your vacation.
We have hand-selected hotels and guesthouses that are welcoming and child-friendly. Specific family rooms are available in many of the hotels so we will do our best to accommodate any size and shape of family. Most venues also have kid’s meals available too, if any of your family have any other specific dietary requirements, let us know before you arrive and we’ll do our best to cater for your needs.
Our guides are getting rave reviews from cyclists all over the globe and there is a good reason for this – they understand that each cyclist is different, they are their to help you along your route, and they’ve got a great sense of humor too. And if all else fails we have got our back-up bus, so if it all gets too much you’re little ones can hop in and rest up a bit.
We’ve worked hard to design a family tour that all of you will enjoy, it’s a unique adventure that your children will never forget. From cycling together along blissfully quaint country roads, to delving into the past and having a blast! You’ll forge a stronger bond together, learn, grow and be part of the best team there is – your family.
Our family tour is just one of the package options available with our 5 or 8-day guided cycle tours. We also offer See More, Cycle Less, Over 50s and the chance to build your own bespoke tour. Find out more about getting the right bike tour for you.
