Andy Wilkins – BCHT Driver Guide

Accredited London Tour Guide

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 – BCHT Driver Guide”

  • 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.

Black Cab Heritage Tours is Good to Go!

At Black Cab Heritage Tours we place the highest priority on the health and welfare of our customers, team and the wider community. This is particularly the case during the current COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.  It may be a little while before our guests arrive from overseas, as the UK Government recently announced the current 14-day quarantine period remains in place for inbound tourists - to be reviewed every 3 weeks.  We have, however, started to offer a limited number of private tour options as of Saturday 4 July, initially to singles, couples and small nuclear family groups - and we continue to accept future reservations. 

Our approach is in line with the most recent guidance issued by the UK government, and additional advice from the World Health Organisation. We have also put in new health and safety measures in order to promote social distancing and to limit all non-essential face-to-face contact, which has been recognized by Visit Britain as "Good to Go!"
