London #UberEverywhere

Officially the world’s most visited city, it’s only fitting that we make London the next stop on our #UberEverywhere travels. We are Uber’s second International city and one of the fastest growing to date, would you Adam and Eve it!

Welcome to London

The Big Smoke

LUX has enabled Londoners to travel in affordable style for just over a year now and with the introduction of uberX at a mind-blowing 30% – 50% cheaper than black cabs, just about everyone can travel with us. We’re proud of our city, already amassing a strong celebrity following including riders like Conor Maynard, our uberX rider zero; Rizzle Kicks and world famous artist Damien Hirst to name just a few.

Being one of the world’s leading financial centres and a multicultural capital – noisy, vibrant and rich in the arts and commerce – London is a megalopolis of people, ideas and frenetic energy.


Don’t just take our word for it, have a butcher’s hook and check these 5 must sees off your list:

1. Duck & Waffle

You can’t visit the Square Mile without making a stop at the 40th floor of the Heron Tower! With unparalleled City views, bags of style and a menu to match, you will literally be sitting on top of the world with this gem. Open 24/7 – you can watch the sunrise or set whilst tucking into your eggs, what’s not to love?

2. Harrods & Harvey Nicks

Fancy a bit of retail therapy on your travels? Then head over to fashionable West London, home to upmarket department stores and restaurants. Even if your budget is limited, you can still enjoy a day browsing our infamous stores, Harrods and Harvey Nichols.

3. The London Eye

There’s no better way to experience a whistle stop tour of London. Want to see all of London’s famous landmarks in one go? Then you better add the tallest ferris wheel in Europe to your bucket list, rumour has it you can see as far as Windsor Castle on a good day… Make sure you give Queenie a wave!

4. The Tower of London

Despite the Tower of London’s grim reputation as a place of torture and death, within these walls you’ll discover the history of a royal palace.  Around since 1066 and home to the Crown Jewels, the Tower of London has long played a prominent role in English history. So stand where heads have rolled, storm the battlements and get to grips with the legends within the castle walls!

5. O2 Arena

Beyonce, Lady Gaga or Justin Timberlake more your thing? Then head over to South-East London where you’ll find the world’s most popular state-of-the-art concert arena. Bring your night to a whole new level and check out the nightclub, cinema and restaurants that the O2 also has to offer. We promise you won’t be disappointed!

Uber on,

Team London x
