Private Tour: Traditional Black Cab Tour of London's Hidden Treasures

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Depart from your central London hotel or prearranged meeting point in a classic black cab. Then sit back in the comfortable, padded seats and take in the sights as your private driver-guide whisks you around the city.

    Pass by Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Trafalgar Square, and other world-famous sights and attractions. You’ll stop outside each landmark to take photos and learn about it from your private guide.

    Then, set off in search of the city’s little curiosities that most visitors don’t get to see. See London’s smallest houses and square, discover Henry VIII’s cowshed and tennis court, and visit shops that are more than 300 years old and still trading. You’ll also pass a medieval banquet hall, Sir Winston Churchill’s cigar chair, Roman baths, and a house with fake windows.

    Upgrade to include an additional hour of sightseeing, should you wish.

    Your tour concludes in central London after three or four hours, depending on the tour option selected.

    Oh the secrets London cabbies know! Nooks and crannies filled with history hidden just out of sight, but yours for the asking on this amazing tour. You won't know what you're missing if you skip this opportunity, but part of you heart will regret it.
