I would like to buy some inner tubes and tyres for this Raleigh Routier in grandparents garage (poor photo)!
What size do I need to buy? Many thanks

look around the wheel rim and around the sidewall of the tyre, there will be sizes shown there.

Looking at the picture, it is very likely to be '700c' which is a very common size and even available in your local Wilkinsons but check first.

HI, thank you very much. The bike is not with me so I wanted to buy some and put them on in a couple of weeks. Wilkinsons is a great shout.
What tyres would do?

Regards

round ones!

anything narrow and smooth, if in doubt ask at a bike shop, theres not much room in the frame for wide tyres

These 'might' fit
