Light Up London Private Night Tour (Central London Pick Up)

Black Cab Heritage Tours

Select Option


London by day is glorious. London by night is glorious and glittering. Can you afford to miss out on those hypnotic nocturnal views? BCHT’s cabbies proudly partner with London’s massive Illuminated River Project to showcase London all lit-up like a Christmas tree. Even outside of the holiday season. Don’t forget your shades.
On both our tour options, you get to see the first 4 bridges that will launch Illuminated River. When the art project is complete, it will light up 15 bridges along 2.3  miles of the river. Thames is the star - so many fantastic views from bridges. Stop at the famous Tower Bridge and London Bridge, apart from three others. Blinkers glued and ears on alert for amusing anecdotes about Illuminated River, tidbits on the architecture of the bridges and social history of the diverse communities living along the banks.
Finally chew on this. London’s taxi trade expanded historically alongside the pace of the River Thames crossings? This one’s close to our heart.
