Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at St. Paul's Cathedral and then set off on a stroll to acquaint yourself with Londons finest old pubs. After passing iconic sights such as a former Shakespeare playhouse, head to Blackfriars in the City of London. As Britains banking hub for some 2,000 years, its no wonder that the City of London is home to some of Londons oldest pubs. Head inside one of the locals favorites to experience a proper London boozer at its finest resplendent with wooden tables clustered around a horseshoe-shaped bar. Sip on quality local ales (not included) and soak up the bustling atmosphere while your guide points out features like the medieval wall frieze above the bar.

Head outside and walk along Fleet Street, another London neighborhood that brims with history. Wander through the cobblestone alleyways that typify this part of the city, and stumble upon a late 17th-century pub tucked away down a side street. Choose from the large selection of beers, ales and ciders on tap (not included) and sit down with your guide, hearing tales of British literary greats who once drank here Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Dickens and Alfred Tennyson, to name a few.

Leave your pub and work off your afternoons beers on a leisurely stroll to Covent garden, a short walk away. Pass more historic pubs along the way, and hear tips from your guide about other drinking dens to visit in the capital for more beer or perhaps an evening meal at your own expense.
