Visit traditional pubs in London's West End!

Depart from St Martin-In-The-Fields Church in Trafalgar Square, and follow your guide through the bustling streets thronged with pubs and theaters. Make your way to a traditional ‘boozer’ on the cusp of Trafalgar Square.

Escape the crowds down a quiet side street and head inside your next pub for a snack and a beer.

We arrived from the US at 6:30am on a Friday morning into London. Because of the drastic time change we knew that we HAD to do something the first day to keep us awake. We chose this tour which started at 2:00pm to do just that. Best decision we made on our trip. We got to our hotel, dropped our stuff, changed clothes and ventured out to the meeting place Trafalgar Square Met our guide Nick who was fantastic. There were 7 of us on this walking tour. I thought assumed we'd get little tastings like shot-glass size of beer in these pubs. Not so! We got full glasses of beer or a flight of medium sized glasses. Plenty of adult beverages served at each stop. I'm not a huge beer drinker so I was allowed to get a glass of wine instead at each stop. At our final stop we sat down and had appetizers. Just enough to hold us over and soak up the alcohol! The tour was great because we went to small local pubs that were down alleys or side streets that we definitely wouldn't have found or stopped at on our own. Surprisingly - they were all pretty full in the middle of the afternoon! Tour ended at 5pm, we grabbed a quick dinner and went back to our hotel to try and get on a UK sleeping schedule. This was a nice leisurely paced afternoon and I would highly recommend this tour!
