a&u Blue Plaque Bike Tour

Mahatma Gandi, Issac Newton, Florence Nightingale, Alan Turing and John Lennon - what have they all got in common? 

Every one of them lived in London pretty much in a (biggish) circle around Hyde Park. 

Jump on your bike this weekend, or over half-term, and go on our speedy Blue Plaque Tour with the kids. 

From a musician to a code-breaker, the ultimate nurse to the 'Father of India' and a brilliant scientist get pedalling and learning about these late greats at the same time.  

Mahatma Gandhi 20 Baron's Court Road, W14 9DT

Sir Isaac Newton 87 Jermyn Street SW1Y 6JP

Florence Nightingale 10 South Street W1K 1DF

Alan Turing 2 Warrington Crescent W9 1ER 

John Lennon 34 Montagu Square W1H 2LJ
