What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Traditional Black Cab Tour of London’s Christmas Lights

Tour London's Christmas lights in style

Greet your private driver at your central London hotel, and then hop inside the back of a classic black cab. Relax into the taxi’s cushioned seats and gaze out of the window as you travel down streets lined with twinkling Christmas decorations.
Cruise through areas like Mayfair, Chelsea, Belgravia and Kensington, whose upmarket boutiques boast some of the capital’s most iconic annual Christmas window displays, and pass top London attractions including the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye and the Tower of London.
Continue to Regent Street and Oxford Street, and hop out of the cab to soak up the festive atmosphere and get an up-close at the shop windows and lights. Your tour will then conclude either back at your hotel or at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, where you can ice skate, try out the rides and sip mulled wine (all at own expense) — it’s up to you.

This is a wonderful private tour 1-5 persons in a traditional black cab. Driver tells interesting history as you drive through the wonderfully lit London streets - the Christmas lights are wonderful. The driver was great about letting you get a out for a couple of minutes to take photos.
we enjoyed it very much

Our guide was amazing, funny and engaging. We had no idea how beautiful the Christmas Lights in London's commercial districts are! I booked this tour as a fun surprise for my husband and adult son, hoping it wasn't going to be lame, and we all loved it! Well worth it. I would do it again if i were in London during the holidays. They have some of the best light decorations I've ever seen.

Steve gave us an excellent tour of the beautiful holiday lights up around downtown London. It was lots of fun. He told us many interesting stories about the area. He is a native Londoner and certainly knows the history. Plenty of photo ops.
