One of the runaway successes of My Route was a free taxi tour which took place during Summer 2014. The tours brought local history vividly to life with a 1970s-styled taxi taking visitors on a trip down memory lane with sensory props, music and audio of personal anecdotes from residents past and present immersing passengers in the sights, sounds and memories of the Road. At the end of the tour participants had a special chance to sample some of the delicious food available at Al Faisal’s restaurant, in the heart of the Balti Triangle. The tours proved a hit with people of all ages, to the point that all eighteen tours were sold out!
Now, thanks to additional funding from the Sir Barry Jackson Trust, Sampad is delighted to announce that the free My Route Taxi Tours will be running again during August 2016! Tours will take place on the dates shown below. PLEASE NOTE:
