Covent Garden London WC2 020 3004 4953
London black cabs, the only taxis licensed to ply the streets for hire, are a comforting sight in the West End, offering safe and experienced (although not particularly cheap) transport. If the yellow ‘for hire’ sign on the roof is illuminated, you can simply hail the cabs from the street. You won't wait long if you stand anywhere along Long Acre, St Martin’s Lane, Drury Lane, Strand or High Holborn, and there are designated taxi ranks on Aldwych and on the Strand. All black cabs use meters and have a standardised fare structure; your driver is obliged to take you the fastest route to your destination. If your destination is in Greater London, drivers cannot refuse to take you on any journey within a twelve-mile distance or of up to one hour in duration. Taxis can carry five or six people plus luggage; all are wheelchair accessible.
