Full description
Art Deco affected all forms of design from the roaring 1920s until the 1930s. Art Deco jewelry, photography, clothing and other products with bold shapes, colors and geometric designs were collectable in their own right. Art Deco was also used in the design of buildings for all to enjoy.  

On your 3-hour Art Deco London Taxi Tour, you can expect to see a range of Art Deco architecture. London may not have anything as tall as the New York skyscrapers, but the city does have its own monuments to the Art Deco style, and these are not to be missed.  In addition to the opulence and grandeur, the functional will also be included with examples of housing, factories, cinemas, London underground stations and theatres - all perfect examples of the modernist working, domestic and social life of Londoners almost 100 years ago. Taking in a range of buildings will also allow you to see the work of various architects and designers who contributed, sometimes only once and sometimes prolifically, to Art Deco London. Your private Art Deco taxi tour has been designed to enable you to appreciate the interior of the buildings you will visit as well as the exterior. Make sure that there are a number of buildings where you can go inside and see the Art Deco splendor that has been preserved.  

At the end of this particular tour, you will be dropped off at the V&A Museum or the Royal Institute of British Architects Museum to continue with your Art Deco themed day. Perhaps after finishing your tour, you would like to have a fabulous cream tea or gin tasting session at Claridge's – the Art Deco jewel in the crown. Just ask to make it happen.
