We had the pleasure of getting to ride "Rosie" with our driver Paul. We were running late getting to our hotel where Paul was picking us up. We sent him a text about our delay and he told us "Not to worry, I will be here!" Once we went outside the hotel there was the coolest red Austin Mini Cooper... More

This was the best tour ever! Loved our wee mini 'Rosie'! Special thanks to our driver Paul, who really showed us the best of London and gave us different ideas of where to visit! Also thanks for the stories you told during the driving! This tour is "must do while in London"!

We were lucky with the weather and lucky with the excellent drivers we had. Two hours go fast when zipping around London in a mini and no time to lose as so many tasks to do. Laughing the whole way round. Tip: make sure you have comfy shoes when doing the treasure hunt. Thank you to smallcarbigcity in being accommodating... More

Our first trip to London. Booked Small Car Big City based on the positive reviews here. It was absolutely one of the highlights of our trip. Paul, our driver and guide, was fantastic. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about his city. He also was an excellent driver - he chose the routes that were less congested and showed... More

We had a fantastic time with Sam, Paul, Tom and Pri. The guys were friendly, passionate and knowledgeable. They really wanted to make sure we had a great time and we absolutely did. Several people commented on how glad they were that Sam really encouraged us to take a look down Maltby Street Market (we were busy quaffing some champers... More

No better way to see London. You will get to places you never thought possible. These Cars draw more attention than the super cars, so get ready for plenty of photos. Great trip, great guide in Sam who was fantastic. Don't miss this one

Brilliant and fun way to see London and learn about trivia you never knew. We hired five vintage mini coopers and zipped around town trying to rack up as many points as possible by heading to different landmarks and carrying out various dares and tasks. Well organised and tailored to what we wanted, picking us up and finishing the hunt... More

Tom and Jay arrived in plenty of time picking us up from Stratton Street near Green Park and six of us went out for an hour.

2 hour ride with some special places from Harry Potter films... Me, my son (12) and my daughter (6). Perfect for three persons per car. We were driving with open roof - so good weather is a real bonus! It is not a given route - guide knew his way around very well so he was very flexible with where... 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.
