Description

Discovering London by day is already amazing, but exploring the best of London at night is glorious and glittering.

Black Cab Heritage Tours cabbies proudly partner with London’s massive Illuminated River Project to showcase London all lit up like a Christmas tree, even when it’s not the holiday season.

You will get to see the first 4 bridges that will launch the Illuminated River. When the art project is complete, it will light up 15 bridges along 2.3  miles of the river.

The Thames is the star – so many fantastic views from bridges and we will stop at the famous Tower Bridge and London Bridge, apart from three others.

Blinkers are glued and ears on alert for amusing anecdotes about Illuminated River, tidbits on the architecture of the bridges and the social history of the diverse communities living along the banks.

Finally, chew on this. London’s taxi trade expanded historically alongside the pace of the River Thames crossings? This one’s close to our hearts.
