What Will I See?
Showing you the very best of what London has to offer, this 3-hour taxi journey will encompass both iconic landmarks and lesser-known hidden gems dotted around the capital. Below are some unmissable highlights that you’re bound to spot on your tour!
1. Big Ben
A tour of London wouldn’t be a tour without this iconic clock tower. Towering a whopping 96 metres above the ground, Big Ben is quite literally, unmissable. If you’re lucky enough to get there on the hour, you’ll even get to experience Big Ben chime!
2. Downing Street
Apart from in the movies, it’s quite rare to get a good glimpse of No. 10. But with London Taxi Tours, you’ll be whisked away down Downing Street, enabling you and your family to get up close and personal with the PM.
3. Buckingham Palace
You’ll also get your dose of royalty on this 3-hour tour around London as you drive past the impressive Buckingham Palace - don’t forget to see if Her Majesty’s home!
4. Trafalgar Square
Be truly immersed in the hustle and bustle of London as you make your way through the streets of Trafalgar Square. Look out for Nelson’s Column, the Lions and see if you can spot the infamous Natural Gallery.
5. Tower Bridge
You might have walked across this infamous bridge, perhaps even commuted across it daily, but driving across Tower Bridge is simply something you have to do at least once in your life. Take in breathtaking views of the city all from the comfort of a black cab!
