Westminster Wildlife

Pelicans The City of Westminster has wildlife in its parks, canals, and, of course, the London Zoo; but this ride also includes human representations of wildlife, some of real creatures and some of mythical ones. You can try and time your ride to catch the Pelicans being fed in St James’s Park between 2.30 and 3 pm.

Westminster Public and Street Art

This eight-mile ride covers some of the most famous, and sometimes controversial, public art (that which is commissioned or permitted to be installed) and street art (unofficial, but occasionally left in situ) in the City of Westminster. Throughout the ride it’s worth keeping an eye out for adapted ‘No Entry’ signs with sticker overlays by Florence-based street artist Clet Abraham.
