Spirit Of London Ride at Madame Tussauds London

Journey through the capital’s history

Jump into one of London’s iconic black cabs on our ‘Spirit of London’ ride - an exciting journey through the capital’s history. From the comfort of your taxi, witness the historical and cultural events that have shaped London into one of the greatest cities in the world.

Spirit Of London Ride

Relive Tudor England, see the streets being ravaged by the plague and catch the moment the Great Fire engulfed the city in flames. Emerging from the ashes is Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece - St Paul's Cathedral. Encounter a monumental recreation of Nelson's Column, ahead of arriving in a city at war where the familiar voice of Prime Minister Winston Churchill calls out, rallying the nation.

Roll on the bright lights of the swinging 1960s in Carnaby Street and the vibrant colour of the 80s, before stepping out of your black cab and continuing your journey through the attraction.
