What better way can there be to travel in a traditional London Taxi driven by a highly trained and knowledgeable London cabbie who is also an accredited Tour Guide. On a ‘Black Cab Heritage Tour’ you will get to see all of London’s iconic sights, such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral and Big Ben. During a ‘Black Cab Heritage Tour’ you will notice how friendly and helpful our Driver Guides are when you are met and greeted at your hotel or preferred pick-up point. Your Black Cab Heritage Tour Guide will use a combination of his historical, geographical and contemporary knowledge to deliver a factual commentary in a fun and entertaining manner to provide you with an unforgettable Tour and enhance your London experience.

London by day is glorious. But London by night is glorious and glittering. Can you afford to miss out on those hypnotic nocturnal views? BCHT and our cabbies proudly partner with London’s massive Illuminated River Project to showcase London all lit-up like a Christmas tree. Even outside of the holiday season. Don’t forget your shades.

On both our tour options, you get to see the first four bridges that will launch Illuminated River. When the art project is complete, it will light up 15 bridges aong 2.3 miles of the river. Thames is the star of the tours, but so are the fantastic views from bridges. Stop at the famous Tower Bridge and London Bridge, apart from three others. Blinkers glued and ears on alert for amusing anecdotes about Illuminated River, tidbits on the architecture of the bridges and social history of the diverse communities living along the banks.

Finally chew on this. London’s taxi trade expanded historically alongside the pace of the River Thames crossings? This one’s close to our hearts!
