Overview

Experience London’s traditional drinking scene on this 3-hour afternoon pub crawl. Accompany your guide on a fun and educational tour in and around the city, where you’ll visit at least four historic pubs and taste different brews (own expense). Pop into centuries-old ale houses, see literary haunts favored by writers like Charles Dickens, and learn about local drinking culture through the ages.
  • 3-hour afternoon walking tour, taking in London’s historical pubs
  • Visit four traditional London pubs in London Bridge, the City of London, Fleet Street, and Holborn
  • Sip on a pint (not included) in London’s last surviving Elizabethan coaching inn
  • Discover what a real London pub looks like on a visit to an alehouse in Blackfriars
  • Sit down in a pub once frequented by Charles Dickens and Arthur Conan Doyle
  • Small-group tour with a maximum of 14 people ensures a more personalized experience
Your afternoon pub tour begins at St. Paul's, where you will meet your guide and set off for the first stop on your 3-hour tour. As you walk, check out city attractions like St. Paul's Cathedral and the bustling Fleet Street. Pass the site of a Shakespearean playhouse, then pop into the art nouveau Blackfriars for a drink. Grab a pint (own expense) and enjoy colorful stories from this neighborhood's banking community.
Next, head down Fleet Street, flush with pubs and gin palaces to service the journalists and literary greats of the day. Stop at a proper London boozer for a civilized drinking experience. Buy yourself a delicious local ale (or two), admire the authentic medieval decor, and enjoy the buzz as regulars and newcomers fill up the wooden tables surrounding the horseshoe bar.
Continue along Fleet Street, the former stomping grounds of Charles Dickens, who once resided in Furnival’s Inn (now Holborn Bars). Visit a 17th-century pub that was a favorite of Dickens and fellow writers Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Alfred Lord Tennyson. Sip on a delicious beer and cider (not included) and soak up the literary history of the place.
Your tour ends at Covent Garden with plenty of time (and insider information) to continue the fun at another local pub.

Will was a great guide and a genuinely good person. Very knowledgable, funny, mingled with everyone and really made everyone feel very comfortable. Took us to some historic bars and had a background story for each place. Definitely recommend booking this tour and asking for Will!!

We had a fantasy time on the historic pub tour in the City section of London. Our guide Dave was charming and help our group blend and become friendly. Dave took us to several charming pubs with interesting and fun facts along the way. It was our first day in London and in addition to being a great historian and guide, Dave was very helpful answering questions and giving recommendations for visiting London. I highly recommend this tour and btw I don’t drink beer! Thanks Dave.

Tour was good. One small downside was that there was no real communal bonding experience. It was mainly going to each pub and dispersing, then meeting back up when you are done. I have been on pub tours where everyone sticks together at each pub there is a designated place to sit for the group and then you get to know more people and just socialize a bit this is just my preference. If you do not mind not socializing with others then this may be the tour for you. You do get a nice bit of history and the pubs are interesting though. The guide is also very sweet, funny, and knowledgable. Just a minor downside which I wish I would have known about.

David and Griff were awesome and entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour. Although, you do have to question David on some of his stories. Some are true, but some maybe aren't? But that just added fun to the overall experience.

Had lower expectations as it was a pub tour but our guide, Chris, was fantastic. My wife and I got some great information and insights not only of the various pubs but the local flavor too. I would recommend this tour and go again next time we are in town.
