For hundreds of years, life in London has played out in public houses where people come to eat, drink and be merry. This tour takes you to four public houses that have seen some of the city’s most famous characters pass through their doors and allows you to sample small glasses of their signature ales.
You'll discuss the Gunpowder Plot in the pub where it was planned, delve into the seedier side of London’s historic entertainment in a place that used to host cockfights, relive the Blitz in a pub that has long been frequented by journalists and raise a glass to Charles Dickens in one of his old favorite haunts.
At each of the four stops, you’ll taste the house’s specialty beer and learn what makes the preferred drink of Londoners unique to the rest of Europe. Aside from the pubs, you'll also see neighborhood landmarks like St. Paul’s Cathedral, Fleet Street and the Firemen’s Memorial.
