Explore a city full of mysteries on the Poirot London Locations Tour by Black Taxi. Follow in the footsteps of one of the world’s most prolific detectives on this fully-guided tour.
Since he first appeared on the page in 1920, Hercule Poirot has gone on to be one of the most popular of London’s literary sleuths. He stands out and draws in audiences with his peculiar methods, his quirky Belgian mannerisms, and, of course, his distinctive moustache. The character’s fanbase grew when he was brought to life on the small screen in 1989. As a result, London is now packed-full of iconic filming locations just waiting to be discovered!
The Poirot London Locations Tour by Black Taxi will show you all the best sites.
On this tour, you’ll be driven through London by an expert tour guide. They’ll bring you down winding streets and little-known shortcuts to find the most famous Poirot locations in the city. They’ve already done the detective work, so all you have to do is sit back and relax. While you travel, your driver will also offer up some fun Poirot trivia and tales from behind the scenes.
A location that every Poirot fan is sure to recognise is Florin Court. This upscale apartment block featured as Whitehaven Mansions during the Belgian detective’s on-screen adventures. It was here that Poirot lived in his decadent, 1930s-style abode. The building’s curved facade is a prominent feature of Art Deco architecture.
And that’s not the only piece of fine architecture that you’ll visit on this tour! Many of Poirot’s mysteries took place in some of the most spectacular buildings throughout London. You’ll be sure to stop at the neoclassical Victoria House, the Russian-designed Highpoint I in Highgate, and many more!
Of course, the world would never have been graced with the magnificent Hercule Poirot if it were not for the equally fantastic Agatha Christie. The famed author gave life to the eccentric detective in her novel The Mysterious Affair at Styles. And the Poirot London Locations Tour by Black Taxi makes sure to pay homage to the character’s creator. On your trip through London, you’ll pay a visit to the Agatha Christie memorial in Covent Garden. The statue celebrates all of Christie’s works, both literary and for the stage.
Your tour will end right in the middle of the West End, London’s famed theatre district. Strolling along the streets you might even find a production of The Mousetrap. Created by Agatha Christie, it is the longest-running theatre show in the world!
