What makes this tour special

Explore the hub of British politics in the quintessentially British black cab, with an expert guide to narrate your journey with stories highlighting the significance of this fascinating area. See all of Westminster’s iconic landmarks, including the Houses of Parliament, Downing street, and Westminster Abbey, as well as 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and 2 Tudor Palaces - among many other sights (full list below). 

On your black cab tour, discover the real London – from a well-informed cabbie who knows London like the back of his hand, with many hidden secrets for you to discover!  Westminster has been home to many of our fundamental political institutions for hundreds of years, including Parliament, the monarchy, and the judicial system. No other area in the UK is so powerful and influential in the forming and implementation of laws. Amidst the uncertainty of Brexit, as well as the possible collapse of our essentially 2-party system, there is no better time to delve into the world of politics. 

Whether you are interested in the British monarchy's royal palaces or the UK Parliament and Brexit, your expert guide is more than happy to spill all of the gossip, alongside the history of any topic which may interest you. If you would prefer to hear more about the Second World War and Churchill's magnificent speeches, or the 2000 year old architecture and London's modern skyscrapers, then feel free to ask questions along those lines. Your guide is ready to discuss anything you throw his or her way - including filming locations for Harry Potter, James Bond, and Downton Abbey, amongst many others. In short, for any curiosity you may have about London today and British history as a whole, you're in great hands for a conversation to leave you reeling for hours after your tour has ended.
