Andy Wilkins
BCHT Driver Guide

Brought up at the end of the District Line in Upminster I became a police officer at the age of 18 in 1983 and spent 30 years policing London’s streets, finishing as a Detective Chief Inspector. 

During that time I lived in London’s St Katharine Docks but now live in Kent. Such is my love of London that on retirement I decided to complete The Knowledge and joined the ranks of the great London taxi trade in November 2012.

I went on to complete the Cab Guide Course in 2015 and at the same time joined the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers.

I follow all sports, I’m a West Ham season ticket holder, Essex Cricket member, rugby dad and a keen golfer.

I am passionate about my great city and I’m happy to explain why.

One thought on “Andy Wilkins”

  • Can’t say enough positive about Black Cab Heritage Tours. If I could give 10 stars I would. Andy was an amazing guide. He knows this beautiful city so well and was able to show us so much during our trip. The combination of his personal experience along with the old stories gave us a great appreciation for London. Much MUCH better than the hop on hop off tours.

Your health and safety are our top priorities at Black Cab Heritage Tours. We've implemented the following special measures to keep you safe both during and after your tour:

Private Tours: London Black Cabs have a maximum seating capacity for up to 6 guests in a private setting. This capacity is ideal for couples and small family groups.

Stringent Cleaning: Each guide sanitises their black cab with disinfectant cleaning agents after each tour activity. The passenger area has separately controlled air-conditioning. Driver Guides wash and sanitise their hands on a frequent basis throughout the day. In addition, hand sanitizer is available to all guests.

Social Distancing: A transparent partition screen provides a private passenger compartment, providing a safe space for guests. This exceeds the current 2 metres minimum distance based on UK Government guidelines. Our drivers promote panoramic sightseeing in the safest and cleanest form of London transport. Presentation stops are conducted in quiet open air locations, away from crowded hot spots.
