Which is why we understand how important it is for you to be able to book our minicabs quickly and through a website or app you can trust. No matter where you are or where you’re going. London Cannon Street is a somewhat mysterious station. Despite its incredibly central position (it’s located between Monument and Mansion House tube station), a lot of people have never even heard of it. And yet, it serves thousands of commuters every day as they pass through it on their way to work. Built on the site of the medieval ‘Steelyard’ – a place where traders would meet in the 15th and 16th centuries – Cannon Street has been operating since 1866. Dutifully sending trains down to Kent and the south east while also serving both the Circle and District lines around the city. The station was built on the northern banks of the Thames as part of what was once a prosperous trading area but gradually fell out of fashion as larger stations became more popular. The street itself is actually one steeped in lots of history. It’s the site of the famous London Stone. A loose piece of mythical oolitic limestone that fractured away from what was once thought to be a giant rock. No-one actually knows what the stone was used for (although there are many theories), but it features prominently in the works of Shakespeare and the poet William Blake. A man who rather romantically believed the stone should be used as the keystone upon which we could build a new London. Today the area is part of a famously busy part of the city, and one that requires constant transport solutions. For our part, Addison Lee are proud to offer minicabs to rival any Cannon Street taxi service. And at a price that competes too. We’re up to 30% cheaper than black cabs. What are you waiting for?
