A trip in a London taxi through the heart of London is among the top ten best cab journeys in the world, according to a leading international travel guide. ForbesTraveller.com has ranked a trip in a black cab from Marble Arch to the London Eye, via Piccadilly Circus and Whitehall, in the top ten anywhere. The guide – renowned across the world as an invaluable companion for the traveller – says passengers need not worry about the driver getting lost because of the unique Knowledge that London taxi drivers have to pass.


It is another feather in the cap of the capital’s drivers and the iconic cab that is instantly recognisable the world over.

Matthew Cheyne, Sales and Marketing Director of LTI Vehicles, which manufacturers the London-style taxis, said: “Once again, London taxis are being recognised internationally as the best.

“Some of the other journeys on the list are breath-taking, including boat taxis in Venice and around the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. But none of the other trips in the top ten can claim that the vehicle is in an integral part of the experience.

“Millions of tourists each year make a point of taking a ride in a London taxi when they visit London and we are delighted that this latest survey shows they are still as popular as ever.
