Royal Historic Pubs Tour

Greater London, United Kingdom

Experience hosted by Linton And Glenn

2.5 hours
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

What better way to see London and some of it's most famous location than to drink at four of its (and often most hidden) drinking establishments and hear scintillating stories of the royals, both past and present!

Embrace England's centuries-old pub scene as you're entertained by tale of salacious scandals of romance, intrigue, and betrayal.

Along the way, we'll admire some of London’s most iconic attractions, including Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, and Westminster Abbey, as we stroll through royal parks and over secret tunnels and raise a glass or two to the monarch!

Guaranteed to have you amazed and laughing throughout.
Other things to note
It's a walking tour, but there's not a lot of distance involved. Having said that, the alleys can be very narrow and there are a small number of steps to climb throughout. Wear comfortable shoes.

Wonderful tour with our guide Harry! Had a fabulous time and learned a lot about both London history and current topics. Small tour size made it feel more like an afternoon out with friends rather than the traditional tour format. Absolutely recommend!

My daughter and I had an unexpected layover in London so we were looking for something fun to do. We booked this tour and we’re so glad that we did! We got to see some areas where we’d never been, to try some beers and cocktails that we never would have tried and to meet some fun new friends! There were two other people on the tour with us and Al was such an excellent tour guide and I feel like he really made a point to make sure that everyone was included and he had so many fun facts and pieces of interesting trivia. He also went out of his way to help point us in the right direction to get back to the airport after the tour. I highly recommend this tour!

The guided tour of the pubs was a highlight of our visit to London. Our tour guide Harry was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and brought the experience to life with a very personable nature and great enthusiasm. Felt like we truly learned something about the less known side of London, and also included a brief piece of information about how to ensure waiters in London get a part of their tip! Great experience all around, would recommend for all who are up for a bit of walking and a bit of drinking!

I had the best experience with Harry on the pub tour! I found myself solo for the day as my family had other plans and decided to join the tour alone. What a great decision! Harry was funny, knowledgeable, and was just an all around great guy. I’d highly recommend this tour for anyone that’s looking to hear some interesting stories/information and have a great time drinking your way around London.
