Took a black can from The Imperial War Museum to Waterloo - the driver was friendly and polite and made us welcome. Made conversation asking us about our trip. He took a direct and fast route to get us to our train on time.

We booked a cab from Victoria to Heathrow. A lovely young man from Kent named Harrison provided us with a totally stress free and timely trip tp the airport. Give Uber a miss - Black Cabs are so much better
