> USEFUL APP
We personally use the Citymapper app to plan public transportation, and would definitely recommend it!
For taxi services, there are 3 options:
Uber: Convenient, fast, and significantly cheaper than a Black Cab. Uber is a great alternative to taxies in London (we use it a lot). You will need to download the app and sign up with your credit card.
Black Cab: Classic London black cabs are easy to spot and seat 5 people. They are easy to catch from Holland Park Avenue and High Street Kensington, but tend to be rare on Holland Road.
Minicabs: Minicabs need to be booked online or over the phone. They can be booked for immediate pick-up or in advance. Addison Lee is the largest minicab company.
