Full description
Enjoy an afternoon stroll through London's liquid history, pausing to quench your thirst in 4 of the city's most historic pubs. This 3-hour tour of some of the city’s finest alehouses follows in the footsteps of legendary city chroniclers, such as Charles Dickens.

You will take a gentle 2 mile walk through some of London’s ancient streets, departing from London Bridge in historic Southwark, and enjoying fine views, quirky history, and a drink or two along the way. Stop at no less than 4 different pubs to quench your thirst, with visits to taverns that date back as far as 1549.

The small group provides a more personal touch and local feel, and the trip will finish close to the Strand and Covent Garden, where you will be a short walk from the theaters, shops, and restaurants of London’s West End. Not to mention even more historic pubs if you want to carry on your liquid tour of London on your own…
