This experience is currently on pause as a result of COVID-19 and will resume once we can drink together again inside London’s historical pubs. See you soon!

No trip to London is complete without sipping on an ice-cold craft beer at a pub steeped in centuries of history.

So join our local guide to find London’s best watering holes and delve into the city’s history.

You’ll begin your tour at The Crown Tavern, once a concert hall and a significant location for Lenin, Stalin, and Judy Dench. Then, find yourself entangled in the extraordinary history of Central London’s world-famous pub scene as you travel through the city’s side streets and cobbled alleyways to visit seven influential pubs.

From the Great Fire to the French Revolution; bare-knuckle fights and prisoners to English royalty and global visionaries – our guide will tell you stories about London that will make your jaw drop and your sides split with laughter.

There is nothing like experiencing London’s history through it’s most British establishment. And of course, when in London’s pubs… one must try the beer. So we’ll be ending our tour at a special pub offering an impressive selection of craft and cask ales and beers – and a substantial gin collection to boot!

It’s 5pm somewhere…

So why not get your ticket now?

“Dom was a great guide, he was excited to show us the pubs and was great at keeping conversation going. And our group even met up for dinner the next day. Great group.”

“The experience was great! Our guide was knowledgeable and the host helped me when there were minor scheduling problems, they were very accommodating and communicated well. I can’t speak for everyone’s expectations but my group started as a collection of strangers and by the end we all went out for dinner together (and met up the next night too!) Overall, it was fun and I’d recommend it to anyone.”

“My first Airbnb experience and it was really good! Tom was very knowledgeable and friendly. It felt more personal than other similar tours and definitely better than a pub crawl. There were only 3 of us on the tour, all traveling solo and after it ended we went back to one of the pubs and hung out for 2 hours! Definitely would recommend for solo travelers.”

AliciaMarch 2020

“This was a great experience, very worth doing. The guide Tom was excellent and made the tour really fun and informative. Ended up visiting at one of the pubs on the tour and had a great time, wouldn’t have found such an old unique place on my own.”

“This tour was a great way to get to know the local pubs in London, and truly felt like a walk back in time. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for an authentic experience led by a Londoner that knows and loves the city and it’s history. Dominic was a great guide and was a pleasure to meet, and left the tour feeling like friends instead of just tourists!”

“Highly recommend going on this tour if: a) you enjoy history b) you enjoy drinking pub culture c) you want to learn about London d) you want to support a charitable cause and/or e) foggy London weather seems better with a pint! Amy was super accommodating in creating a new tour for the time I requested – I was wowed by that! Ultimately I had the best time on this tour with a few friends – it was a big highlight our trip. Would do again next time I’m in the city!”

JillJanuary 2020

“The tour was very interesting and entertaining. I liked the mix of information, facts, history, architectural details, and the great surprise awaiting each of the selected points. I appreciate the guide’s recommendations.”

AbigailJanuary 2020

“We highly recommend this tour! Tom was very enthusiastic and is an amazing storyteller. He has a lot of knowledge and was always open to answer all of our questions. He guided us to pubs and places we would have never been able to find without him. Really enjoyed this experience!”

LizJanuary 2020

“I booked this tour for a group of old friends who have lived & worked in the city for a great many years & frequented it’s pubs. Tom, our guide and talented storyteller, dazzled us with tales of historical incidents, quirky tales & morbid curiosities surrounding many pubs we did know, but more surprisingly uncovered hidden gems we had no idea existed. It was the perfect start to the evening & I highly recommend it.”

“Dominic was our guide for the Historic Pub Tour, and I can say he was one of the most charismatic guides I have ever met. He is truly passionate about this work, and his enthusiasm was contagious. He knew SO MUCH about the history of these pubs, and treated us with stories that were fun, romantic, scary, funny, and took our imagination to magical places. He is pleasant and accommodating, and I couldn’t think of a best way of spending these afternoon hours. Highly recommend as an experience to learn about these magical pubs, imagine London life during past centuries, and feel the energy of these allies and streets and dark pub rooms with all of the history behind it. You won’t regret it. Thank you Dominic!!”

KarenOctober 2019

“This tour is an absolute must! Our guide Dominic was incredibly knowledgeable, funny and entertaining. What a delight! He even extended the experience well past its scheduled finish time to show us hidden pubs and other historical sites. I’ve been in London for two weeks and am only sorry I didn’t do this tour sooner. All proceeds from the tour go to a children’s charity so there’s really no excuse. And if you don’t like beer opt for a gin and tonic. Book it now!”

BelindaSeptember 2019

“Dominic is simply the best! I had the luxury of being the only person in this experience and Dominic went above and beyond to cater the experience to my interests. I saw some amazing and historic pubs that I would not have found on my own. Dominic is so easy to talk to, he felt like an old friend. Our tour ended up being longer by a couple of hours but it did not feel like it! Do this tour if Dominic is your host. :)”
