Michael Caine’s 1969 film, The Italian Job, has become a cult classic and encapsulates London’s eccentricity perfectly. In the film Charlie Croker and his fellow gang of reprobates steal $4 million from the Italian Mafia using three classic Mini Coopers. To carry out the job they don bright blue jump suits and tweed flat caps, stash the gold in the boot and make their getaway via the side streets of Turin. You can re-enact this iconic scene with the optional fancy dress overalls and caps in the boot of your very own restored classic Mini Cooper. Your getaway driver is a passionate local guide that will show you the places you won’t find in the guide books. The really good stuff in London is often hidden away down tiny back streets and alleyways – places only a Mini can get to.
Expect to see:
Big sights, hidden gems, quirky back streets, street art, local markets, great views and lots of people taking pictures of you if you wear the jumpsuits!
