A taxi driver's guide to Streatham

Need a Streatham taxi? Get an Addison Lee minicab instead. Then follow our Streatham taxi driver’s guide to uncover the best restaurants, pubs and attractions in the area. There’s a myth in London that Streatham is completely cut off from the city because it has no underground station. But in fact, its wealth of bus and train links make it far more accessible than people let on. Addison Lee’s easy to use website or app gives you another option. One that’s 30% cheaper than a black cab and that never, ever charges ‘surge fares’. Google “Streatham is..” and one of the first suggestions that’ll pop up is “… on the up”. This ever changing corner of SW London that sits on the border of Wandsworth and Lambeth has been through a kaleidoscope of different phases over the past thirty to forty years. And after a long period of economic decline, it would seem that now, once again, Streatham is indeed on the up. In the beginning there was the village of Streatham. Ideally located between London and the south coast. For any of your friends who steadfastly insist that Streatham gets its name from Saint Reatham, you can assure them now, once and for all, there was no such martyr. Instead, it got its name from the Romans, who called it ‘Strete’ ‘Ham’ as in ‘The Hamlet on the Street’. Custodian of Europe’s longest High Street, and once london’s busiest, Streatham is once again alive with great pubs, fantastic restaurants and lovely cafes. All ready to be visited the moment you get here. So all you need to do now is follow our Streatham taxi driver’s guide and order an Addison Lee. It’s time to get exploring. What are you waiting for?
