Tales of the Thames
River Thames has always been central to the development
of London. Views of the London skyline change with every
twist of the Thames. The many bridges provide a different
view of London's landmark buildings, such as Big Ben and
St Paul's Cathedral. From Tower Bridge to Chelsea, this
tour gives you a real sense of the depth and variety of
London's architectural history, with the chance to stop
and take photographs wherever you want.
Special Christmas Tour
See the famous Christmas lights on Regent Street and Oxford
Street (where only buses and taxis are allowed) and the
traditional Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square.
If you feel like escaping from the hustle and bustle of
the city, then drive with us to one of London's villages
and spend an hour or two exploring areas full of special
English charm and character. Visit Greenwich, famous for
its seafaring connections, with the maritime museum, Cutty
Sark, and the meridian time line. Or take a trip to Hampstead,
with its fashionable shope, cafes and bars, and the wide
open spaces of Hampstead Heath. Or travel west to the Royal
Borough of Richmond, a "village" full of antique
shops, boutiques and cafes, situated between riverside and
parkland, and then travel on to nearby Wimbledon, home of
the world-famous Lawn Tennis Association Championships.
The London we see today is a vibrant mix of nationalities
and cultures. See how and where these cultures have helped
to shape London into the place it is today. See where the
"Cockneys" live, where immigrant communities have
influenced the character of different areas, and discover
hidden streets and markets, marveling at London's diversity.
A visit to London can include much more than the usual
tourist attractions. This tour takes you to a London that
most tourists never see. Behind the modern city hides London's
long history - seventeenth century taverns with gripping
tales to tell, and ancient churches with secrets locked
inside. A Black Taxi Tour driver is the perfect guide to
take you through fascinating backstreets crammed with history
- which otherwise you'd be sure to miss. Throughout the
tour, the gude points out London's hidden haunts, including
those of the British secret services MI5 and MI6.
