The World Cycling Revival Festival is a brilliant 3-day festival in London. It’s taking place at the newly re-opened Herne Hill Velodrome, one of the oldest and most famous cycling tracks in the world.

A perfect day out for those who like racing, music and tweeds. Join us for a British Garden Party like no other.
