Your fairytale ride is now a reality! We are proud to provide the USA with unique chauffeur services using vintage London taxis.

We have a diverse fleet of London cabs from various eras in the 20th century. Each taxi was in service in the London area before being shipped over 3000 miles to the USA. They are all right hand drive!

Newest to the fleet is the outrageously rare Beardmore taxi. Only 700 were produced in the 1950's, few remain on the planet today. This one has been museum kept in Las Vegas and is in mint condition, a real collectors item and a treasure among our fleet.

The Austin FX3 from 1956 is best known for its connection to the hit film 'A Hard Days Night' by The Beatles. The band hop into an FX3 when they arrive in London with dozens of screaming fans trying to catch a glimpse of their idols. It is a moving piece of history, arguably the most elegant in the fleet.

The Austin FX4 is a very rare convertible London taxi cab, perfect for spring or fall weddings. It is hot red and ready to dazzle! It is very popular with brides, providing dazzling colors to every wedding photo. Stand in the back and make your arrival or getaway as if in a charriot, you'll have the perfect view of the wonderment around you.

We also have the only stretched London taxi in the USA, we call him Big Ben! He seats eight passengers and is the perfect choice for a group of Bridesmaids or Groomsmen.

In addition, we have a fleet of classic black cabs, all are extremely rare and new to the market. Use the matching fleet for shuttling guests to and from the party. They line up in orderly fashion, as if outside a railway station in London.

We are available for all special occasions, we love to provide top quality service using only the finest drivers with charming personalities. It's spectacular fun, call us to find out more! We are Based in Wilmington, NC. so weddings in this state receive the best rates, however we do ship vehicles nationwide.

We reccomend that you book your taxi early to avoid disapointment. Contact us today and be ready to ride like royalty! Read less

We selected The British Taxi to transport the Bride and the Bride’s Father to our wedding ceremony and then the Bride and Groom back to the reception. We were impressed with the level of communication we received in advance of the day. The company contacted us with the name of the driver and confirmed all addresses and pickup times.

On the day the driver, Andrew, was friendly and obliging. Our entire wedding party were impressed with the unique touch that the car added to our big day. We would recommend The British Taxi Company to anyone looking for a unique travel experience.

The British Taxi was so great! They were right on time and made such a memorable way to arrive and depart from our wedding. All of our guests got such a kick out of seeing the taxi. Our driver even stuck around for a few minutes so they could get a few pictures.The driver was so courteous, especially since it was raining! They parked right next to the door and even had umbrellas. Such a cool way to finish off a wedding, and it makes for some great photos!

We didn't think we were going to have a "getaway" car until about 2 weeks before the wedding. We didn't want a traditional limo, or anything as big (though fun) as a trolley. Our wedding planner suggested the British Taxi. I checked out the prices, and they were great, especially for the unique factor! We found a fun way to drive away from the reception, and off to our favorite restaurant in Wilmington (Flaming Amy's), before heading back to the hotel. What made it even more interesting to us was that the driver was actually British!

We booked this service just days before the wedding and they upgraded our car to the large limo. the driver was great, and the whole wedding party used the car to go tour downtown Wilmington before dropping the happy couple at their bed & breakfast for the night. They had an absolute blast and are still talking about the ride. They loved it because it gave them a few minutes alone with their closest friends at the end of the evening to thank them for all they did to add to their wonderful day. Great idea, great service and happy with the price as well.

We booked The British Taxi at the last minute as transportation for after our reception, and I'm so glad we did. The were professional, polite and the car was awesome. We had the red convertible taxi, although the top was on thankfully. It was a beautiful car and a great way to get away for a bit after our reception wrapped up.
