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.

4 pubs, 3 hours and over 2000 years of history
“In simple terms, a really interesting and liquid filled tour, calling on pubs which were either hidden secretively away down a side cobbled street........... or were full of history and haunted tales.....or both!”
“There was an engaging mix of pubs visited, from a rare old boozer with regulars firmly entrenched, to bustling gin palaces, and it felt like our guide was adapting the route as we walked along, according to the group’s interests, weather, opening times etc. Highly recommend this tour whether you want to experience more of London, pubs, beers, or just have a fun day out.”
“The relaxed pace and style of the tour was brilliant. Learned so much about the city and it's history, in spite of having been several times before. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes history and a pint of ale!”
