What you'll do

We'll follow in the footsteps of some of history's most iconic characters, such as the Queen and Winston Churchill and we'll hear their fascinating stories.

With four excellent traditional historic pubs to explore we'll get the chance to sample some of Britains best beers.

Avoiding the main streets we'll be winding in and out of the backstreets and secret alley ways on the lookout for intriguing sights and stories.

We'll hear about Prince Harry's naughty days as well as hear tales of other exciting princes from our past.

In-between each excellent pub there'll be a chance to take pictures whilst being entertained and amazed by stories of underground tunnels and unexploded bombs from the second world war.

Plus much much more.
Other things to note
It's know to rain in England. Although we will be spending a good amount of time inside of pubs we will still be walking from one to the next and seeing things as we go. Please dress accordingly.

I'm a veteran London guide and underground folk singer that lives on a boat.

I've been exploring this great city and it's historical pubs for as long as I can remember and absolutely love showing off our unique pub culture to guests.

There are not many parts of this city that I don't know so I'll of course also be able to help you figure out what to do next.

But first things first. lets have a beer.

Both me an my girlfriend really enjoyed the tour. I live in London but my girlfriend is from Italy and really enjoyed the opportunity to try different local drinks in an authentic setting, and to learn about the culture and history of the area which our guide, Glenn, was really knowledgeable on. I'd like to thank Glenn for showing us a good time and would highly recommend!
