C&V Sights in Paris & London?

I'm leaving for a vacation next week, and stops will include Paris and London.

Can anyone recommend C&V bike-related things to see or do?

I'd be interested in cycling-related museums, famous builder/constructeur shops, or sites if there were anything to see. I especially like to see exquisite and rare bikes or examples of historically interesting technological innovations.

I'm really interested in the aesthetic, technological, historical and cultural aspects of bikes and the bike industry, but really not so much in racing or famous racing cyclists.

Lots of pretty and cool old bikes is also a plus. So even a good used bike shop would be cool.

Thanks for any suggestions!!

Sorry, that's Witcomb Cycles. We have a member, TM-london, who works for Witcomb. You could try contacting him.

Here's the website though.

Well worth a visit. Cyclotoine has visited the shop, so you could ask him about it, too.
