Join us for a guided afternoon walk
to London’s most famous pubs & ale houses…
Following in the footsteps of Shakespeare & Dickens we stumble along the “Street of Shame”. Pausing to quench our thirst in at least 4 historic pubs, you can sample the wide selection of beer, gin and other delights at your leisure.
From ancient art nouveau gems to back street boozers and Victorian gin palaces we experience some of the oldest pubs in the city, with some dating back 350 years.
En-route we enjoy iconic sights such as St.Paul’s cathedral before exploring hidden alleyways and quiet courtyards far from the maddening crowds. Listen to the gruesome legends of Sweeney Todd, and hear the haunted happenings of London’s most ghostly pubs, before finishing on the edge of Covent Garden…
* Advance Reservations Required
From Dickensian classics built in the mid-1500’s, to hidden gems and glamorous Victorian gin palaces we enjoy a wide variety of pubs, alehouses and taverns.
Drink along the “street of shame”, meet famous parrots, hear how the Great Fire formed the modern city, savour architectural icons, eavesdrop in the legal heart of London, and hear the legend of Fleet Street’s very own Demon Barber.
Beer! Beer! Beer!
We hunt out the real ales that London is famous for, but don’t worry if you prefer something different and even non-alcoholic! Gin lovers might find over 60 to choose from, whilst non-drinkers can still enjoy a historic day out without a drop passing your lips!
Meet the locals…
The afternoon sees the streets of London at their quietest, but as the walk comes to an end, the offices spill out and city workers are found relaxing over a pint…
Fancy Some Pub Grub?
We might only have time for a cheeky pork pie & pickles or scotch egg along the route, but we finish close to pubs serving all the classics. Enjoy some fish & chips in one of London’s most haunted pubs. At over 500 years old, the ghosts of executed priests may join you…If you prefer something a little less spooky, Covent Garden is just around the corner.

“This experience was really so much more than just a pub tour. Yes, we went to numerous historic & beautiful pubs and our excellent tour guide was well versed in the history of the pubs and the ales we sampled. But we also walked the City of London and the guide was also extremely well versed in both the local history and architecture. I can not say enough positive comments about this experience”
“The tour was the most excellent way to spend an afternoon. We know London but this was a tour which shows you a different side of the City. Our guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly and we loved every moment. I hugely recommend this tour to both locals and tourists”
“A really great afternoon on a walking tour of historic London pubs, it was fabulous to go to tiny ancient hidden gems that we would never have found by ourselves!”
