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

Wonderful review! It’s actually a great time to explore the city and enjoy the pubs without the usual throng. We have a maximum group size of 6 people at the moment to aid social distancing and keep us mobile as we traverse the capital. Thanks for supporting ourselves and the pubs as we try to bounce back to normality. Cheers!
