The London Taxi has once again been voted the most iconic vehicle in Britain, according to a recent survey commissioned by Holiday Inn. The poll of over 7,000 Brits was carried out by the hotel chain to find out the 50 things people love most about Britain.

The instantly recognisable black cabs ranked the highest vehicle on the list ahead of the Aston Martin, Mini Cooper and Jaguar E-type. Fish ‘n’ Chips topped the overall poll, followed by the Queen in second place and old fashioned pubs in third.

Rob Laidler, Sales Director for LTI Vehicles said: “This survey sums up everything we love about Britain and is yet another accolade for the London Taxi. It’s not hard to see why our cab is loved by millions of Britons and this result serves only to reinforce its iconic status. Visitors to this country always quote a ride in a London Taxi as one of their favourite activities. This helps make London a unique city in the world with the best taxis and taxi drivers by far.”

Andrew Smith, spokesman for Holiday Inn, commented on the findings: "As a nation, we are rightly patriotic. This list gives a fascinating insight into exactly what it means to be British – our food, history, Royalty, our many wonderful characters and all the fabulous places we love to visit."
