About
Enjoy a historic private tour down the infamous "street of shame". With over 30 pubs and gin distilleries to choose from, your guide will tailor the walk to your personal preferences. With plenty of time to pause for a drink in 4 or 5 of London's most famous pubs along the way, the guide is on hand to recommend a few local tipples. You'll also enjoy a smattering of quirky history as you stroll through the hidden alleys and courtyards that make the City of London so unique. The walk finishes close to Covent Garden, and you might choose to dine in a haunted pub dating back over 400 years.

It was an amazing experience, we learned a lot and also enjoy time with our guide Mark. I loved that my group was very friendly. Mark gave us a lot of history details, and tips to choosed our beer and gin. I hope I could do this another time and meet wonderful people, I really recommend it! You won´t regret it :)

We had a great time on our walking Pub Tour. Our guide, Kevin, was knowledgeable, engaging, and felt like a close friend by the end of the day. He showed us some great pubs in the City of London that we would probably never have found otherwise. I would highly recommend!!

We booked a private tour for the afternoon of a stag party and it was worth every penny. It's a very entertaining way to see the historic sights of London, with some beer stops along the way!
I would love to do this again and can thoroughly recommend it!

Kevin was a fantastic guide and he setup the tour so that it met in an area close to our group and took in local pubs in Borough. Even as the only local in the group I learned plenty of new facts and enjoyed the variety of pubs. Kevin got along fantastically with all of us and felt like a member of our group by the end. Would definitely point people at Liquid History in the future and do another tour myself

Had the most wonderful, informative and enjoyable tour with John! His knowledge of London and it's pubs is outstanding, a truly fantastic guide. I kept thinking of how many people I know who would love to do this tour, if you like your history and your pubs then this is the perfect marriage of the two!

Terrific tour absolutely perfect for what we wanted. Finished almost next door to the theatre we were going to at exactly the right time. Kevin was fascinating and great company, as well as a mine if useful information. Great way to see a part if London I didn't know well. Would thoroughly recommend.

Best team social we've had so far!! Everyone loved it - such a great mix of interesting facts, secret pubs and fun stories! Our guide Dave was very knowledgable and fun, and passionate about London's history and of course - pubs! Haven't laughed this much in a while :) Would highly recommend to anyone who's looking for a fun activity in London. You can't go wrong booking this for a team social, drinks are completely optional so also perfect for people who want to come along but don't feel like drinking. Thank you Dave!!
