Your adventurous tour of the Historic Pubs in the City of London starts with meeting your local tour guide in front of the Blackfriar Pub. Then you will enjoy visits of four authentic pubs, followed by entertaining and informative commentary about each of them.

On our list of pubs are: The Blackfriar, Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, the Cockpit and The Centre Page. Each of them has a unique architecture, cozy interior, friendly ghosts and exciting history, as Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese and the Centre Page are nearly 350 years old.

Get a real taste of some of the finest ales served in London and trace the footsteps of the literary figures Charles Dickens, Oliver Goldsmith, Mark Twain, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Samuel Johnson, who are all said to have been ‘regulars’ to the pubs.

During the tour you will see from outside other well-known pubs and bars in the city, such as The Tipperary, The Old Bell Tavern, Ye Olde London and Ye Olde Watling and you will also explore some parts of the City of London, viewing St.Paul’s Cathedral, Guildhall and the Millennium Bridge.
