Highlights

  • Visit the homes of some of London's best known writers and poets
Full description
Learn about the ideals held by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, which building influenced the Ministry of Truth in George Orwell’s 1984 classic. Where did Charles Darwin start to pen the Origin of Species and how many famous novels did Charles Dickens write while living in Tavistock Square? So many writers have a London history, a London story and your guide would love to tell you all about them.

Are you as passionate about Yeats as he was about the Golden Dawn? Do you have fond memories of reading JM Barrie’s Peter Pan and would like to know a little bit more about man? Even in 2017, Virginia Woolf is still making the news as more material laying undiscovered for years comes into the public domain.  The tour brings all these famous writers and poets together, across time, across genres, across London, to tell their story behind the story.

Your taxi tour includes:
· The Globe Theatre
· Little Dorrit Church
· Nancy’s Steps
· Tavistock Square
· Coram’s Fields
· Great Ormond Street Hospital
· Senate House
· Bedford Square
· Gordon Square
· Curtain Road

All of the London taxi tour guides have passed the world-famous Knowledge of London exam and have on average been driving a London Black Taxi for over 25 years. In addition, many of the London taxi tour guides have additional tour guide qualifications which means their knowledge of London history, buildings, places, and people is second to none. Their knowledge and passion for London mean that whatever tour you chose it will be fun, informative and memorable. Your taxi tour guide will also have numerous anecdotes and personal stories to share with you on that day.
