Have you tried cillit bang? I did find it actually worked although it did need a bit more elbow grease than is portrayed in the advertising!

White vinegar. Soak kitchen roll with the vinegar and wrap around the taps leave for a few hours and it usually does the trick

Oh thanks everyone. I have some white vinegar to hand so I will give that a go first.

The vinegar worked really well! I'm going to do all the taps in the place tomorrow!
