Hello! I’m Mark Monroe a London taxi driver. I'm sure you’ve seen plenty of us in London since you arrived. Yes, I drive the iconic London black taxi, a vehicle that’s instantly recognizable around the world, maybe you’ve even taken a ride in one already if so you’ve been driven by one of the most qualified taxi drivers in the world! We spend around 3 years studying to get our famous green badge that's a total of 17000 streets and roads to remember as well as over 30,000 points of interest and there’s practically nothing we don’t know about this amazing city. Today I’m going to take you to the places that only London cabbies would know, those quirky hidden gems that are not only fascinating but will also give you an insight into London’s rich history. So buckle up, and get ready to be astounded by some of London’s best-kept secrets from a real London taxi driver!
