About Pryors

We are a family firm with deep roots in the Didcot area.

We’ve been in business here for nearly 200 years, opening a general stores in Harwell in 1833 and later on in Didcot, and then in the 1950s starting a taxi business.

Basil Pryor founded Pryors Taxis in 1955 retiring as a partner in 1993, but remaining as a driver until April 2012. The business is now owned by his daughter and son, Caroline and David.

We’ve served our clients and we’ve been at the forefront of new technology; we like to think that’s been our recipe for success. We were the second taxi company in the UK to install two-way radios in the 1950s even before police forces had them.

Today, we use every technology device to give our clients the very best service that is second to none.


Remember that Pryors are going to open and taking bookings all the way through the Christmas Holiday.

We do recommend advance booking though, particularly on Christmas Day.
