Opt for a Segway in London experience and you’ll spend 60 fun-filled minutes zipping around the beautiful grounds of the iconic Alexandra Palace. Situated on a hilltop, this experience offers stunning views across London as you race on a special Segway rally track around good old Ally Pally!
Alexandra Park is home to the ‘People’s Palace’, a graceful 19th century structure covering seven acres and surrounded by a further 189 acres of parkland, boating lakes and golf courses. It’s the ideal Segway location, with London just a short distance away and easy to reach by public transport from all corners of the capital. We think these speedy, silent personal transporters are a fantastic way of discovering the delights of this Victorian haven of greenery and peace.
Each lesson lasts approximately one hour and includes getting kitted out in safety gear before a short practice session on your personal x2 All Terrain model. Once you’re confident getting on, off and manoeuvring one of these sleek machines, it’s time for a Segway rally London-style. This is where you can test the true speed of your Segway and pit yourself against the other riders in your group. With up to 12 people taking part at any time, you can bet that the competition soon hots up!
Throughout the entire course at this wonderful North London venue, you’ll be guided and supervised by a trained Segway instructor, who’ll also give you hints and tips on how to get the best from your transporter. Your journey takes you on paved walkways, wooded trails and open grassland, so knowing how to control your x2 is a vital – yet enjoyable – aspect of this challenge.
You can Segway in London on midweek or at weekend dates, so it offers maximum availability for maximum enjoyment. Although spectators are welcome to come along, they’ll only see the start and end of the action as the rest takes place in the parklands of the estate. However, Alexandra Park offers a full range of activities year-round to suit everyone. So why not make a day of it in London and after your Segway rally session use the rest of your time to explore the park, or even the city centre? That way, going Segwaying in London is sure to be a memorable experience for everyone. Or, if you’d prefer an alternative venue to London, take a look at our Segway experience days out nationwide.
