Accredited London Tour Guide

I would love to show you around MY London – and yes, we will get around to see ALL those iconic landmarks during our time together, like Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower of London, BUT also some hidden London, some secret London, some movie site location London, plus of course any bespoke London of your choice.

London has SO MUCH to offer, and I have SO MUCH to show you, and as a born and bred Londoner I can get you under the skin of the REAL London – a diversely historic past, a rich mix of social history, great markets, unique traditions and traditional pubs, all combine to make London the greatest City in the world.

My main interests have always had the subject of history at the very top of my list – and because sport, film, music and literature have always appealed to me I have included these topics in some of my speciality tours.

  • Thanks for a great day giving us a customized James Bond/movie location tour! Your knowledge and expertise along with Brian’s driving made for an interesting and jam-packed day of fun! Our day with you was a highlight of our trip!

  • Just a quick note of thanks for the awesome experience while I was in London. Rob took great care of me. I’ve posted a note to my Facebook page, attaching Black Cab Heritage Tours link with a note stating, “If you are planning a trip to London, I highly recommend Black Cab Heritage Tours. I took The Classic London Tour and was so glad I did.” I also posted the attached picture of Rob (hope you don’t mind Rob) with a note, “My tour guide Rob! I was so impressed with his knowledge of the city, its history and its sights. And my “ride” for the tour, an authentic London Black Cab.

  • I was in London on a business trip and decided to bring my family along. During a day off from work we took a Harry Potter tour with Black Cab Heritage tours. The Cab picked us up from our hotel and the driver was Bob. From the very start of the tour, he not only made us feel welcome, but entertained us and the kid from start to finish. We were so impressed with the tour, which we subscribed to their “classic London tour” the next day. What an absolutely great company, driver and produce. I can highly recommend this company and would be more than happy to answer any questions (it was that good).

  • I would highly recommend the Classic Tour, our Guide Rob was not only very knowledgeable but had an affable personality. We got to see some of London’s hidden secrets, including the 2,000 year old Roman Wall and our driver also kept us amused with some funny stories.

  • Rob met us outside the hotel – and immediately made us feel at home. He asked specifics on what we wanted to see – and let us know he would also bring us to some fascinating spots that are not on many tours. Great knowledge of the area – knows the streets downtown like the back of his hand. We missed a lot of traffic jams on the way to points of interest by scooting around them on smaller roads. Great job! Great knowledge of Beatles trivia and locations. Saw Abbey Road, Sir Paul’s current home, Pubs where they drank and places where they lived. Gave us plenty of time for pics – and always took the time to answer our questions no matter how unusual. Overall – I felt the trip was great value for the money. We covered a lot of ground in a few hours – and was able to tap his encyclopaedic knowledge of the area.

  • This is so much more than a taxi ride around London. Rob Woodford’s ‘Premier Classic Tour’ was exceptional. My family (three adults and two teens) truly enjoyed being driven to and shown some of the most significant London sights. In addition to being a trained taxi driver, Rob is an interesting and knowledgeable historian. Rob’s taxi comfortably accommodated our party of five. (His cab has Wi-Fi so we could research and bookmark sites to re-visit.) His narrative was enjoyable to hear, and he answered all of our questions. His love for the city showed.
    Rob customized the tour to our interests and a real bonus was seeing some of the sights off the beaten path. He selected some beautiful buildings, sculpture, and paths that he thought we’d enjoy.
