Top Class Black Cab Tours

This week I decided to try and review a new company that does a lot of work around London, particularly East London.

Top Class Black Cab Tours are a taxi tour company that offer a variety of tours based on various themes.

For example:

- Harry Potter Film Location Tour
- Jack The Ripper Whitechapel Tour
- Haunted London Tour
- Historical London Tour
- Magical Mystery Tour
- London's Dark and Hidden Past

They also offer these as corporate events. For a price list please see their website.

Naturally I wanted one that was based in East London, so I tried the Jack The Ripper Whitechapel Taxi Tour. I have to say it was really, really good. Being interested (a bit of an expert) in the 'who done it' story of The Ripper, the knowledge of my 'cabbie' was astounding. If the other tours are as proficient as the one I was on, they are outstanding value and I would highly recommend them.

For more information call them on +44 (0) 20 8523 8555 or visit their website www.topclassblackcabtourslondon.co.uk.

Taking the plunge - time to get a personal trainer

Ok, so the Walker Bros Fitness boot camp went great. I feel healthier and have a new found passion for fitness.

However, The boot camps are held with quite large gaps between then as I believe hold further camps in Clapham and Wandsworth.

I was aware that it was important to keep up the momentum now that I had started so I approached my instructor Tim and asked him if I could have some one on one personal training sessions. I booked just one session to start off with and placed an order for a further 9 straight afterwards.

My personal training session is once a week on a tuesday before work. Tim meets me at my gym near Liverpool Street station and we spend an hour working on my goal which is to beef up a bit.

Tim has helped me with a training schedule and given me dietary advice although I am finding hard to lay off the kebabs :)

The guys at Walker Bros fitness really are great. Their enthusiasm for fitness is infectious and I have begun to notice real changes in only a few weeks.

I feel better in the mornings and I might just wear those jeans that I haven't fitted into since my late 20's next week.

Walker Bros Fitness Boot Camps in London

I recently went to a boot camp session in Liverpool Street at the recommendation of my friend Garry. They have 3 sites Liverpool Street, Clapham and Wandsworth. Coming from east London I decided my best bet was to try out their Liverpool Street boot camp.


You can sign up directly on the site. I had a few questions about the boot camp I wanted to ask before I committed my money so I called them. The staff were friendly and efficient and even offered my first boot camp class for free. How can I loose?

I had to get up early (7am) to attend and the kettle bell work out was gruelling but fun. Straight away afterwards I noticed a difference in how I felt.

I've just signed up for the whole of next month at a cost of £45 that is less than a single session with a personal trainer and I still feel that I got all the benefits.

Thanks a lot Guys!
