I’ve been a taxi driver for 6 years after switching from bricklaying – I’ve never looked back!
The view from my office window ain’t bad at all – I feel privileged to spend my days driving around London and seeing the city. I meet people from all walks of life and get to share the best sights with them.
One of my favourites is the view from Waterloo Bridge at night, with St Paul’s Cathedral, Canary Wharf, The Oxo Tower and the Shard all in sight. For somewhere a little quieter, St Dunstans in the East is a good spot to grab a few moments’ peace.
When I’m not in my cab, you’ll usually find me spending time with my four children. I can also juggle with skittles – just don’t ask me to do it whilst I’m driving!
Frank’s top London fact
The statue beside the National Portrait Gallery is of Sir Henry Irving, one of the biggest actors of his time.
He owned the Lyceum Theatre and his theatre manager, Bram Stoker, idolised him so much he named his son Irving. Bram is also a famous novelist and wrote Dracula whilst working for Sir Henry.
Could Sir Henry have been the inspiration for the character? It’s possible!
