If your plan is to know a Green London like nobody else, there are several proposals for your itinerary. This beautiful European city has several parks to explore, the possibility of cycling and many sustainable options for tourists and residents.

For travelers interested in the subject, there are tours and routes to see the greenest of the city. For example, what are the hotels and restaurants eco-friendly or the activities that are done outdoors. You can download a map called Green London or get it in pocket format during your stay.
There are many reasons why a person can decide to ride a bicycle in this city. Beyond being a movement called Green London and that more and more people are aware of the planet, the truth is that the public transport system in the capital of England can be very expensive. On the other hand, the bicycle allows you to get to know places on the route and even to exercise after the English tea in the afternoon or the fish and chips at lunch.
London's bicycle rental system was inaugurated in 2010 and is part of a government policy to care for the environment. They can be rented for an hour, although the most affordable is to do it for a season. Of course, if we are on vacation, this alternative will not work. There are some 500 stations to remove and return the bicycle.
