Typical Fares and Travel Times from Major Essex Towns To London
Book your taxi well in advance to gain access to the best London West-End and airport transfer rates available from each major town in the county of Essex.
The home county of Essex is perfectly placed to the north-east of London. You can escape the hustle and bustle of the capital during the day but are still near enough to pop in for a weekend of shopping, clubbing or enjoying a West End show. Whilst you might consider using public transport to make the journey into London, don’t disregard the idea of taking a cab into the capital. If you book in advance and share the cost with your fellow passengers, you’ll be surprised by what an affordable option taxis are in comparison to the ever-increasing cost of train fares.
