At one of our London airports on a London layover? Will you be at Heathrow airport, Stanstead , or Gatwick on a London layover and have 6 or 8 hours or more, with nothing to do?
How about we pick you up, give you a great private sightseeing taxi tour of London or Windsor, and drop you back at the airport in time for your flight? Windsor Castle is a great tour if you are looking for things to do near Heathrow airport or we can whizz you into central London for a sightseeing tour.
There is so much you can do on a layover in London so If that sounds like a great way to spend time then keep reading to find out more!
The great news is yes, you can leave the airport during a layover. Do you have a layover in london and are thinking about a London layover tour?
The shape and duration of your London layover taxi tour depends on the time that your layover happens and how long you have. So, for example, if it is after 6pm you could enjoy the London by Night taxi tour. Or if it is during day, you might enjoy the London Highlights or our Secret London taxi tour. And we can also mix it up a bit so that you get to enjoy a little bit of everything while you're in our wonderful city!
Remember we are here to personalise your London layover tour to make sure you absolutely get the best experience of London while you are here.
Some people prefer to make their own way into London via the Heathrow Express, the Stanstead Express, or the Gatwick Express, and when they do we pick them up from Paddington Station, Liverpool Street Station or Victoria. If you decide to do it this way, the prices for each tour are the same as displayed on the individual tour pages - see the links above. Otherwise our london layover tour prices are on this page and of courses include your transfers.
Planning your London Layover Tour
When planning for your layover in London tour, you will need five hours for a 3-hour taxi tour and six hours for a 4-hour taxi tour. This is because we need an hour each way to drive you into London and to get you back to the airport. On a good day, you should be able to get through immigration in an hour, but it's best to plan in extra time if you need to collect luggage.
For a London layover, 8 hours is the magic number, that gives us plenty of time to pick you up , show you London and get you back for your next flight. However, if you have less than 8 hours then there are other things we can do, like a visit to Windsor and Windsor castle or Leeds Castle if you are at Gatwick. And theses tours should not be considered the B option - they are great layover tours.
Need to talk things through? No problem, we can help you with the planning and we can help by talking you through our London tour ideas. Just give us a call or email us.

Just tell your driver at the beginning of the tour, where you would like to end your day.

Yes we can but none of the airports are within central London and so pick up and drop off would not be included in the standard tour price. In fact most London airports are around a 60 minute drive away from central London. You may need to look at our Airport Layover Tours page to get a better idea of additional costs. Our layover tours are very popular. Our guests love the way we design the tours around their travel needs.
