  • Very engaging and informative tour.

  • Our guide was excellent and his recitations were beautifully done. I was hoping for a few more locations where earlier writers had also drunk. The Francis Bacon and Augustus John connections were revealing. Altogether it was satisfying. The Wheatsheaf is a perfect starting point.

  • Neil, I mean Charles was a character! His use of verse, song and humor kept a smile on my face. The flare from the aftermath of the parade also added an interesting twist. Well done Sir!
