Private Tour of London's Historic Pubs

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
A trip to London is not complete without popping into a traditional pub for a drink. So why not take a private, walking tour of four historic London pubs with just your group, with one of Britain's leading beer experts? Get your beer goggles on and don’t forget your camera!
  • Get an inside glimpse into London's pub scene with a pub expert
  • Receive the undivided attention of a private guide
  • Customize the itinerary according to your interests
  • A small glass of beer is included at each pub
What to Expect
Your tour begins at a designated meeting point in Central London, where you’ll join up with your guide and head to the first pub on the itinerary. On this private tour, you’ll be able to tailor your itinerary according to your interests.
Wander the historic lanes of Fleet, Holborn, and Blackfriars streets and the City of London, and stop at public houses that include a Victorian gin palace and a replica of a medieval hall. You’ll discover little-known information from your guide and enjoy a small glass of beer in each pub. Your tour concludes in the final pub.

Jane did a fabulous job on our tour. From our initial meeting (with the help of her emailed photo) to her extensive knowledge of London's pub history and beer in general. I highly recommend Jane for an informative and highly energetic taste of London. SM.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was such fun spending time with you and your family. Next time you visit London I will find a pub that sells Jaipur X (the Imperial version of Jaipur) - it is a stunning beer!

We started at 1pm. It was supposed to be 3-4 hours. We had so much fun with Jane that it ended at 6. We did order snacks at each pub so that took longer.
