Highlights

  • Choice of several departures throughout the day
  • Editor's Pick

Arrange your private pub tour and let the charismatic pub tour leader take care of the rest! The tour normally starts around 3pm. Your guide is an expert on the London pub scene, beer and alcohol history as well as local architecture and British customs (having written books on all five subjects). The guide is also Britain's Beer Sommeliers of the Year and makes regular appearances on British television and radio to discuss the subject.

Visit four delightful pubs within the historic City of London at Holborn, Black Friars, and Fleet Street - each one unique and full of history. Drink in a Victorian gin palace; an art nouveau public house that resembles a medieval hall and is the only one of its kind in the world; plus a Restoration ale-house – rebuilt in 1666 after it burned down in the Great Fire of London.

Your group will sit down for a complimentary half-pint in each London pub to soak up the atmosphere, and listen to fascinating anecdotes relating to the pubs and surrounding areas. A half-pint of beer per person in each pub is included in the tour price, and your expert guide is happy to recommend which beer to choose. A mini-tutored tasting will be given, advising on the aroma, flavor and body of your chosen ale.

If you're looking for a private tour which includes history, fun and character to go with your pint, then this is the perfect tour for you.

We had a lovely time with Jane. It is not a tour about the beer, but a tour about the pubs. The pubs all had interesting histories and Jane is very knowledgeable. It was like spending the afternoon drinking with an old friend. Also, it's a great walk through neighborhoods you might not otherwise experience.
