Bicycle renting is an innovative new way of getting around the city. Boris Johnson, London Mayor, promoted the scheme not too long ago, and now it’s taken off. You can rent a Barclays bicycle from one of 400 stations found throughout the city. You’ll pay for a rental subscription for a day, a week or the year, and you’ll be able to borrow a bike and then drop it back off at the station.

If you’re only visiting then it’s only £1 per day, and you can use the bike all you like. That’s a fantastic deal for travelling around the city. Just like in Paris, you’ll be able to travel around the city and take in the sights without having to get on public transport.
