Small-Group Tour: Historical Pub Walking Tour of London
US$ 33.45
Get a local's perspective of London on a guided walking tour that introduces you to several of the city's most historic alehouses. Try local brews (own expense), see city sights, and hear stories of the legendary figures who were known to enjoy a few pints in the very same spots. The group is limited to 14 people for an intimate experience.
What to Expect
Meet your guide and small group in Central London. Admire such attractions as St. Paul's Cathedral and a one-time Shakespearian playhouse while walking toward your first stop.

Order a pint (own expense) in Blackfriars, one of London's oldest pubs, frequented by many members of London's banking industry who work nearby. Listen as your guide recounts tales of the local neighborhood.

Then, head to Fleet Street, famously the center of Britain's journalism industry, for a drink at a local boozer.

Afterward, slip down a side street into a 17th-century pub. Choose from a wide selection of ales and ciders on tap (own expense) and hear tales of the literary greats who frequented that very space—Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Dickens, and Alfred Tennyson, to name just a few.

End your tour at Covent Garden with plenty of time (and inside tips) to continue the fun at another local pub.

I booked through Viator but you may be able to go to the ltour co which I believe was liquidtours com directly. I do believe that Viator is owned now by TripAdvisor. I booked over six months out with no problem
