Christmas in London is a uniquely special time of the year with many things to do to light up the holiday spirit and on this Magical London Christmas Lights Tour, you will understand why!

The streets of London have featured Christmas lights for over half a century, their colours and designs add a truly wonderful fairy-tale fantasy vibe to the city.

Many christmas markets, ice-skating rinks, Christmas trees and festive decorations with twinkling London Christmas lights pop up across the city, and on your private tour, your guide will take you to the best spots to spread the holiday cheer.

Our talented driver guides will certainly put the magic into your Festive Season!

You will visit Regent Street and Oxford Street, which offer spectacular Christmas light shows since 1948 and 1959 respectively.

In more recent decades Marylebone High Street, Bond Street, Carnaby Street, Seven Dials and Covent Garden are all festooned with thousands of lights and giant baubles!

In time-honoured tradition, we will also visit Trafalgar Square, where each year Norway has gifted since 1947 a Christmas tree felled by Norwegian foresters providing a majestic setting in London’s most central of locations.

What better way to soak in our winter light festival than with one of our accredited London tour guides – all great storytellers of history, culture, movie site locations, ghosts and secrets!

The River Thames by night is also a magical experience – especially now that London’s latest public artwork is ‘Illuminated River’, of which Black Cab Heritage Tours are proud to be a partner.

The perfect option for private touring or a special gift – to make up for lost time, anniversaries and experiences this year, and give the gift of safe sightseeing this Christmas!

Trust Black Cab Heritage Tours to provide your family or friends with a truly memorable London tour experience!

We went on a Christmas lights tour. Our guide Stella was delightful and very clever at working through the traffic so that we could see the wonderful displays. She was also quite knowledgeable about the history and famous figures, and shared a variety of stories. We highly recommend this company. They communicated promptly, made the booking process easy, and exceeded our expectations!

Every step of our London Christmas Lights tour with Black Cab Heritage Tours was an excellent experience. I would definitely use them again.

Rob Woodford, who kindly helped us with all the information and booking was very quick to respond and very helpful and accommodating throughout the process even when we needed to change the date due to unforeseen circumstances.

Barry Ivens, our tour host and guide was funny, informative, and very very enthusiastic. He really went out of his way to make sure we had the best experience and we got to see the best and most places. He took us to lots of interesting places including quite a few hidden/less known spots. He shared interesting information throughout the tour. And he was kind to take plenty of photos throughout the evening. We really had a great time!

The electric black cab was very spacious, the glass roof was brilliant to view the Christmas lights.

Thank you Barry and Rob for our wonderful experience!

Wonderful night with family sightseeing the London Christmas Lights and attractions and special thanks to driver / guide Rachel and office staff at Black Cab Heritage Tours for making sure all the arrangements were so easy.
Rachel was a great host and added to the whole experience with her EV cab decorated with lights and Bluetooth speaker for our Christmas songs!

We absolutely loved our Christmas Lights tour with Dennis, he was knowledgeable, responded to requests from the children, showed us a load of places I don’t think we would have seen otherwise and took loads of family photos of us too! We also loved the panoramic roof.

Seeing the lights in this way was a much more relaxing experience than other options, highly recommended!
