London, United Kingdom

See all the iconic sights of London and more from the comfort of one of the Capitals biggest and instantly recognisable icons, a London Black Cab!

With your London Highlights tour we will travel through time going back to the city's Roman roots, through the Medieval period right up to the modern day, taking in the major sights of St. Pauls, Tower of London, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace plus some lesser known places.

Throughout the whole tour my aim will be to keep everything light hearted, fun and memorable on each of the places we visit.

We will not be confined to the taxi, and as opportunities arise, we can always stop for those much wanted photo opportunities and at times perhaps a small stroll to the more advantageous spots.

Please remember this tour can be totally bespoke and therefore totally tailored to your requirements

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Buckingham Palace, Spur Road, London SW1A 1AA England

Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of the UK’s sovereigns since 1837 and today is the administrative headquarters of the Monarch.
Today, Buckingham Palace is very much a working building and the centrepiece of the UK’s constitutional monarchy, it serves as the venue for many royal events and ceremonies from entertaining foreign Head of States to celebrating achievement at Investitures and receptions.


Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Houses of Parliament, Parliament Square, London SW1A 0AA England

The Palace of Westminster, to give it its official name, serves as the meeting place for both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, the two houses of the Parliament of the United Kingdom.
Both Houses work on behalf of UK citizens to check and challenge the work of Government, make and shape effective laws, and debate/make decisions on the big issues of the day.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Westminster Abbey, 20 Dean's Yard Broad Sanctuary, London SW1P 3PA England

The Abbey has been the coronation church since 1066, and is the final resting place of 17 monarchs, as well as the scene of 16 Royal weddings. The church we see today was begun by Henry III in 1245. It’s one of the most important Gothic buildings in the country, and has the medieval shrine of an Anglo-Saxon saint at its heart.
Today it is still a church dedicated to regular worship and to the celebration of great events in the life of the nation. Neither a cathedral nor a parish church, Westminster Abbey (or the Collegiate Church of St Peter, Westminster to give it its correct title) is a "Royal Peculiar" under the jurisdiction of a Dean and Chapter, subject only to the Sovereign and not to any archbishop or bishop.


Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: St. Paul's Cathedral, St Paul's Churchyard, London EC4M 8AD England

For more than 1,400 years, a Cathedral dedicated to St Paul has stood at the highest point in the City.
Frequently at the centre of national events, traditions have been observed here and radical new ideas have found expression under the iconic dome. In many cases these events have left some physical record as well as echoes in the intangible memory of the building.
The present Cathedral, the masterpiece of Britain's most famous architect Sir Christopher Wren, is at least the fourth to have stood on the site. It was built after its predecessor was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666, and services began in 1697.
This was the first Cathedral to be built after the English Reformation in the sixteenth-century, when Henry VIII removed the Church of England from the jurisdiction of the Pope and the Crown took control of the life of the church.


Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Tower of London, London EC3N 4AB England

A Palace, a Prison, a place of Execution! An Armoury, an Observatory, and a Royal Zoo. 

3 Queens of England lost their heads here - Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard and Lady Jane Grey. 

The Tower is where the Crown Jewels are kept (used in all coronations of our Kings and 
Queens). 


Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Tower Bridge Road, London SE1 2UP England

Tower Bridge has become a recognisable London landmark. It is sometimes confused with London Bridge, about 0.5 miles (0.80 km) upstream, which has led to a popular urban legend about an American purchasing the wrong bridge. Several stunt pilots have flown underneath the bridge.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Horse Guards Parade at Whitehall, Horse Guards Whitehall, London SW1A 2AX England

The original and official entrance to both St James’s Palace and Buckingham Palace. 
A Guard is mounted here by members of the Household Cavalry, either the Blues and Royal or the Lifeguards (Kings Troop in July) – the Guard Changes 11am daily. 
There is a Guard inspection at 4pm every afternoon.
Until the late 19th Century Horseguards was also the HQ of the British Army, and remains today the official HQ for Army units based in London. 


Duration: 15 minutes

Pass By: Downing Street, London SW1A 2AL England

Home to the British Prime Minister since 1732


Stop At: Trafalgar Square, Centre of the City, London SW1A England

Trafalgar Square has been the meeting and rallying point for demonstrations and celebrations for many years, dating back to 1830, the Squares focal point is Nelsons Column itself standing at over 169 feet tal

We spent a wonderful day with Brian touring the city. We arranged this tour on our first day so we could stay awake to avoid jet lag. Brian showed us all the sites and some interesting things we hadn't thought of. Our flight was delayed and Brian was flexible in picking us up. We were hot and tired, but he was enthusiastic and cheered us all up. He asked a lot of questions and showed us things that mirrored our specific interests. While the tour seems expensive, I think it was a priceless introduction to the city and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Paul provided a wonderful tour especially given the added element of the queen’s death and the obstacles it presented. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. I would highly recommend this tour and Paul as the guide to everyone!

Our family of 4 is grateful to Paul for a wonderful customized tour of London!! We were able to see and do so many things in one afternoon (4 hours) that otherwise would've been impossible on our own, as we had limited time in London. The door to door service was amazing - we started the tour with Holy Communion service at Westminster Abbey, a highlight of our trip. After that, Paul took family photos of us at several top sights including Big Ben - the photos are fantastic and we will treasure them! We ended the tour at Harrod's and walked back to our hotel from there through Hyde Park (he kids loved the swans & ducks btw). It was a perfect afternoon, thanks to Paul who helped us customize our afternoon tour and is extremely professional and fun.

We’re a family of 18 that took this tour. We had 3 cabs with 3 great guides. These guys had so much information and we’re fun in general. We seen many sites but choose this tour since we have older family members who can not walk for long. This was a wonderful option that worked very well.
