London: Historical Pub Walking Tour

1. London: Historical Pub Walking Tour

Enjoy an afternoon stroll through London's liquid history, pausing to quench your thirst in 4 of the city's most historic pubs. This 3-hour tour of some of the city’s finest alehouses follows in the footsteps of legendary city chroniclers, such as Charles Dickens. You will take a gentle 2 mile walk through some of London’s ancient streets, departing from St Paul's underground station and strolling along the "street of shame". Throughout the tour, enjoy fine views, quirky history, and a drink or two along the way. Stop at no less than 4 different pubs to quench your thirst, with visits to taverns that date back as far as 1549. The small group provides a more personal touch and local feel, and the trip will finish close to the Strand and Covent Garden, where you will be a short walk from the theaters, shops, and restaurants of London’s West End. Not to mention even more historic pubs if you want to carry on your liquid tour of London on your own…

From start to finish this trip was brilliantly organised and executed. Great fun, full of very interesting information, all in all a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. I highly recommend this outing. I will certainly be looking to arrange other trips with this company when possible. Our guide Dave was brilliant, very knowledgeable and charismatic and very happy to answer any additional questions that came up along the way. Thanks to Dave for making our guided tour such great fun.

Great walking history tour of London pubs with friends. I was visiting friends that recently moved to London and we decided this would be the perfect Sunday afternoon activity. We learned some history, enjoyed some pints, and socialized with the tour guide and other fellow tourists. It was a lovely afternoon!

What an outstanding tour this was. Mark was so much fun. Entertaining and knowledgeable information around each turn. 4.5 hours went by in a flash.

Our guide, Chris, was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. We hit bars that most tourists might not find and had some good beer.

Great tour guide as he was very knowledgeable and approachable. The pubs were great as well! Loved the monk Yoda!
