Use our mobile route planner to help you explore London on foot and you’ll find ancient and historical architectures mingled up with sleek modern design. You might come across the London Wall that dates back to Roman times. sandwiched between the Barbican and the cool steel and glass of a myriad smart new offices stretching across to the city. On foot you can really acclimatise to serenity of Greenwich, on the banks of the River Thames with it’s Royal Parks and Maritime Museum set in juxtaposition against stunning modern city skyline with iconic designs of the BT Tower, the Gherkin and Europe’s tallest building The Shard stating their presence. Take a trip over the river on the new Funicular and see the Dome, the Docklands from the air with the Thames Barrier further out to protect the city from flood tides. For panoramic views the London Eye and the London Cable Car are both an absolute must.
The Taxi option.
If you are looking at your route and have realised it’s to far to walk or cycle, not enough time left use public transport and don’t fancy the prospect of driving hunting for parking spaces, then why not treat yourself to a ride in one of London’s iconic black cabs?
UK taxis are regulated, reliable and offer a safe and convenient way of getting around big cities in the UK, in particular London. Licensed taxis/ black cabs can be hailed on the street, or you can pick one up from a taxi rank. Minicabs are lower cost and need to be booked in advance, we recommend using only reputable minicab companies.
