Project Description

Allow me to share my love of London and the history of the Founding Fathers. See parts of London you may not have known about. Be amazed at just how much American influence there is to be seen in London and discover hidden gems that time has forgot, all from the comfort of my London Black Taxi.

The tour focuses on two broad areas:

  • The Thames in the east of the city features the beginnings of the 13 colonies from 1606: On the south side, we will visit the iconic Mayflower and travel around London’s Blackwall, Rotherhithe and the pretty Shad Thames moving to the other side of the river to explore trendy Wapping and the City.

  • St. James’s and Mayfair in the West highlight the beginnings of the nation of the United States from the 1770s. We will visit the former home of one of the Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin. I will show you where the ratification of the Treaty of Paris was signed, and so much more.

The tour is 4 hours with the possibility to extend. Pick up can be arranged from any central London hotel or tube station, and drop off anywhere in central London.

My London Black taxi is wheelchair, buggy and dog friendly!
