What a great idea--a driving tour of London in perfectly maintained vintage Mini Coopers. Our tour guide, Jay, literally knew everything there was to know about London. He's funny (not surprising since his other job is as a stand up comic), but was so informative and answered every one of my random questions. One of the BIG advantages of their... More

Really fun, Interesting tour in the most enjoyable way. The car draws attention just by itself. The lady driver is funny, smart and drives like a champ !! She knows all kinds of turns and tiny streets besides providing lots of facts around the city. Never had a better tour anywhere !!

Wow! I have been to places all over the world, and this experience by far was one of the coolest experiences yet! The driver was super intelligent and made the trip worth while. If you want to see all of the city and you're only in London for a bit, this is for you.

For a Mini owner/fan SmallCarBigCity is a life bonus! Imagine driving the narrow streets of London and environs in an original mini! Edward, our driver was most gracious, knowledgeable about London's history and other factoids and made terrific suggestions for other destinations we did not think about. Brilliant! Best part was whizzing down narrow streets between doubledecker buses and large... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
