Will Jones – BCHT Driver Guide

Accredited London Tour Guide

I was born in Islington, North London in 1971. Attended Highgate Junior and Senior School before moving on to Woodhouse 6th form college in Finchley. Gained 9 ‘0’ Levels and a diploma in Physical Education. Studied History and Ancient History ‘A’ Level.

I’ve been a qualified London Black Taxi Driver for 18 years. I’m a qualified Green Badge Tour Guide and been guiding professionally for 3 years. Member of English Heritage, the National Trust and Historic Royal Palaces. When not guiding I run a self-defence school and train people in many aspects of health and safety. I’m also a keen angler.

As well as classic London tours I offer Harry Potter and Charles Dickens themed tours as well as days out to Bath, Salisbury, Stonehenge, Avebury, Lacock, Windsor, Eton, Runnymede, Hampton Court Palace, Hever Castle and Chartwell House. Also experienced in passenger collection from cruise terminals and providing layover tours and transfers to and from any London airports.

  • William provided a superb tour. Travel conditions were bad due to President visit. William was able to get us to all of the sights we intended to see as well as bringing us to some that we did not think of. He was on time and gave us some extra time (to account for traffic) to make sure we covered our plans. His commentary was very good and gave us info we did not know. Excellent tour.

  • We had an excellent tour with William! He selected the Harry Potter film sites tour plus several key points of interest around central London. We felt extra special as William was able to get us to special sites. He arrived on time at our hotel and since we started early on a Saturday morning our first stops were deserted so it made it all the more special. I don’t want to give away any of William’s surprises for the next guests but he kept my two ‘kids’ (17 and 20) completely entertained!

  • BOOK WITH THIS PERSON! Will is a knowledgeable, accommodating guide! I made a mistake booking entrance tickets, he assured me he could make it work and he did! He read the mood of our group well (two Americans and our two Japanese friends), knowing when to provide information without being obtrusive and when to allow us to experience the sites without input unless we had a question. He arrived early, had snacks available and magically provided umbrellas even though there was no forecast of rain

  • Will was absolutely amazing! His professional knowledge of London, including the details of sites not normally seen by an average tourist, is impeccable! Our trip was a 1 day layover and we’d never been to London. Will designed our tour for us by our request. He gave us options but we told him to just decide for us and I’m so pleased we allowed him to do his thing because we saw it all and more! Thanks for the great day, kindness and for working the camera phone! Loved your taxi. Highly recommended!

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!"
