The Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers participates in events in the City regularly. Throughout the year members, Freemen, Liverymen and their guests enjoy dinners in City Livery Halls as well as lunches.
Membership of the WCHCD is very diverse; all members have one thing in common. They wish to promote the world famous taxi trade as the best in the world. The social events such as dinners are a good way of talking to their colleagues within the trade. Charity and education are important roles within the Livery Companies of the City and the WCHCD is held in high esteem throughout the City.
THE MAGICAL TAXI TOUR
