We love classic cars and London. We believe that visitors to London should feel like locals. We have restored a fleet of classic Mini Coopers and trained a team of passionate local Londoners to show you this great city from a different perspective.
Robert Welch was given a beautiful 1974 Mini Cooper for his 17th Birthday (Jules is still in the fleet) and began a relationship that was to take him from student to entrepreneur.
Robert dreamt of running a company that steered away from conventional methods of touring the capital, to found a company that only used a fleet of classic Minis, quintessentially English guides, music from the greatest decade of all time on the stereo and personal recommendations based on the clients individual requirements. He wanted visitors to London to feel like locals, not tourists.
From a passion for classic cars and a love for the city, smallcarBIGCITY officially opened for business on the 26th August 2009 – exactly 50 years to the day that the first ever classic Mini rolled off the production line, bring the swinging little Mini back onto the streets of London.
