We are here to help you maximise the time you spend in London, what you get to see and the fun you have.

The great news is yes, you can leave the airport during a layover. Do you have a layover in london and are thinking about a London layover tour? The shape and duration of your London layover taxi tour depends on the time that your layover happens and how long you have. So, for example, if it is after 6pm you could enjoy the London by Night taxi tour. Or if it is during day, you might enjoy the London Highlights or our Secret London taxi tour. And we can also mix it up a bit so that you get to enjoy a little bit of everything while you’re in our wonderful city! Remember we are here to personalise your London layover tour to make sure you absolutely get the best experience of London while you are here.
Some people prefer to make their own way into London via the Heathrow Express, the Stansted Express, or the Gatwick Express, and when they do we pick them up from Paddington Station, Liverpool Street Station or Victoria. If you decide to do it this way, the prices for each tour are the same as displayed on the individual tour pages – see the links above. Otherwise our london layover tour prices are on the right hand side of this page and of courses include your transfers.
Planning your London Layover Tour
When planning for your layover in London tour, you will need five hours for a 3-hour taxi tour and six hours for a 4-hour taxi tour. This is because we need an hour each way to drive you into London and to get you back to the airport. On a good day, you should be able to get through immigration in an hour, but it’s best to plan in extra time if you need to collect luggage. For a London layover, 8 hours is the magic number, that gives us plenty of time to pick you up , show you London and get you back for your next flight. However, if you have less than 8 hours then there are other things we can do, like a visit to Windsor and Windsor castle or Leeds Castle if you are at Gatwick. And theses tours should not be considered the B option – they are great layover tours.
