"Could you get Sir Rigby Pick. the eminent Archaeologist safely from Euston Station to the Tower of London? Thread through the streets of London plying for hire and prove your'e the best Taxi driver in the family!" 

Brilliant London themed game called Taxi! Made by Gibsons from the 1980s.

Players represent drivers plying for hire on the roads of Central London. They have to pick and drop off passengers to earn fares. 3 pickup points cards are visible to all players and the first to get to a passenger picks them up. The passenger and destination and 'chance type' card is then revealed. Fares are calculated based on the number of squares between the two points when the taxi reaches that point. Players can undercut fares to get passengers and buy a second taxi when enough money is earned by a player.
