What you'll do

Experience hidden pubs, great beer and truly unique photo locations, as we discover the UK's fantastic and hilarious musical past and present.

Check out where the Beatles recorded Hey Jude, where the Rolling Stones kicked off their career, where Jimi Hendrix partied hard and even a pub where The Who got banned for life!

We'll explore Soho's hidden locations, with the help of four iconic Historic Pubs, where some of the most famous musicians, artists, performers, playwrights, actors and deep thinkers all lived, worked and played.

Perhaps you'll even fancy a sing along at a pub famous for hosting actors, playwrights and politicians alike?!

We'll also visit where Mozart lived and played in Soho - yes, the Mozart - as well as brushing by where General Charles Du Gaulle, Karl Marx, Casanova, Marilyn Monroe and many more legends helped to change the world.

So experience London like a true local, in the company of a true local, and discover the venues and history hidden to most people.

Best tour I could of asked for. Usually skeptical of taking a chance on things like this but Hairy delivered! The history and trivia that was shared was engaging and fun rather than a lecture. The pubs were great and highly recommend.

We got Harry as a guide and he was absolutely fantastic! Not only did he know his history but he was extremely personable when spinning a story. A truly lovely tour and even better experience for those wanting to see an exciting bit of the city with a bit of drinking to boot.

Linton & Glenn delivered a truly wonderful experience!! Being a local Londoner for over a decade and a curious explorer, I genuinely mean it when I wholeheartedly encourage ANYONE and everyone to give this experience a go - if you're a fan of pub culture, history or just Soho in general!! Glenn & Linton did an amazing job in engaging with all of us as guests as well and making the experience feel personal. Despite us all being strangers, I feel that I left the tour with new friends straight from the pub 🤗 🤗 🍻 🍻

I had a private tour instead due to everyone not showing up because of the virus. I understand its annoying. I still enjoy myself nevertheless. Glenn is really nice and friendly. Getting to know and exploring soho like I will not be able to by my own is great! The pubs he brings me are unique and beautiful. What's not to love in soho.

Fantastic experience. I would absolutely do this again. My guide, Harry, was phenomenal and knew an incredible amount about London. He did a great job getting along with our group and this was probably the best way I could imagine to see the city and have fun. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking to have some fun and get to know a new city. One clarifying point - we did have to pay for our drinks on the tour (I.e. they were not included as part of the experience price on AirBnB. ) The description was a little confusing for me but just a helpful tip so your expectations are set correctly going into this. Thanks again Harry. You are the bomb!!

Wir hatten einen wirklich tollen Abend mit Alan! Aufgrund des Corona-Viruses waren wir eine kleine Gruppe (5 Personen). Dadurch hat es sich angefühlt wie ein Abend unter Freunden. Alan kennt sich unfassbar gut in der Londoner Musik und Barszene aus und hat viele tolle, lustige und spannende Geschichten auf Lager. Die ausgewählten Pub´s waren super und besonders die Gin-Bar war unser Highlight. Unglaublich lecker. Wir haben nach der Tour noch lange zusammengesessen und geredet. Ich kann die Tour wirklich jedem empfehlen.
