Souvenirs, London: 31 reviews and 40 photos

  Big Yellow Taxi
by Mariajoy

This is a shack that has been here forever selling tourist tat - It was here when I was a child - I remember asking my dad if I could buy something and he told me then -"no-one buys that overpriced rubbish" - but obviously someone does - 'cos 30 years later it's still here.

What to buy: Well - at this place you will find all kinds of souvenirs - they probably still have mugs with "Charles and Diana" on them!!! T, shirts, hats, scarves, the list is endless. Whatever you buy will have "London" plastered all over it - just in case your friends and family might forget you've been.

What to pay: Waayyy more than it's worth!!!
