Book a London Taxi

Join the thousands of passengers who choose to travel in iconic black cabs

We are the world's only manufacturer and retailer of the iconic black cab and, we might be a bit biased, but we think that London taxis are absolutely the best way to travel.

So, in order to help you travel in style, we've listed companies across the UK that use black cabs in their fleets.

To find your nearest London taxi radio network, simply choose your city from the list below and contact the suggested operators directly. Or, you could choose to download one of the Black Cab Apps which allow you to book a taxi using your smartphone.

We've also provided information regarding the local authority responsible for the regulation of London taxis in each city. Simply click on the appropriate link and you'll be redirected straight through to the relevant page. Each local authority will be able to help with matters such as lost property, complaints about a driver, or quotes.

In the meantime, if you wish to receive an electric cab, a note can be added with your journey requesting this type of vehicle.
