Private Tour - Proper Pub Experience

    What to Expect
    This private walking tour begins with your expert pub guide meeting you at your central London hotel, or a location of your choice. They will escort you to the historic neighbourhood of Southwark in London, where the pub has its roots, to stop in at three 'proper pubs'. In each one you'll receive a warm welcome from the publican and the locals (and even the pub cat), and find out why the British love a pub so much. Then enjoy a tasting of beers and ales with the barkeeper, and enjoy a 'pint' in each pub, learning more as you go about why pubs first started. You'll also enjoy a secret snack paired with a drink at one of our exclusive venues, and your guide will leave you with  suggestions for the best pubs, events, and attractions for the rest of your trip.

    Children are welcome to join the tour, however alcohol will only be served to guests over 18 (the UK legal drinking age).
