It's better by bike

Britain is one of the best places in the world to see by bike. It's small enough to cross comfortably in a week so cycling holidays are a great way to sightsee. Its hills are challenging without being intimidating and its varied landscapes mean that the scenery is constantly changing.

To find out more out where to cycle in Britain check out our cycling routes and itineraries pages and to plan your journey across Britain by bike, use the VisitBritain journey planner.

Bicycles on public transport

Bicycles are one of the best ways to travel around Britain, but sometimes your route might need you to take public transport, or you might just want a break. There are a few guidelines to follow when travelling with your bike on public transport.

In London there are different rules about taking your bike on the underground, trains and buses. For full details check the follow this link to the Transport for London website.

Buses

Some bus companies allow folded compact bicycles on board, but only if there is enough room. London buses will take folded bicycles at the discretion of the driver. Where bicycles are allowed on board buses, you won't be charged.

National Rail

Most train companies allow bikes but only a limited number can be carried. On some services bikes are carried on a first-come first-served basis. On others, spaces must be reserved in advance. Check with your rail operator to find out if you can take a bike on board, or ask when booking your ticket. For a full guide to taking your bike on trains, check out the A to B alternative transport magazine.
