Greater London, United Kingdom

Visit 4 historic hidden pubs with Royal heritage dating back centuries! With beer in hand, we'll celebrate the life of Queen Elizabeth II and discover the salacious (and often scandalous) stories of the royals, both past and present!

As we walk ancient alley ways above secret tunnels linking Palaces to pubs, you'll hear stories about Britain's most legendary characters from Winston Churchill to James Bond & even visit the Palace where Ed Sheran nearly lost an ear whilst partying with a Princess!

Along the way, we'll admire some of London’s most iconic attractions, including The King's house - Buckingham Palace. Then stroll through a royal park on the way to the next beer, all while avoiding the crowds.

Drink where the locals drink, in some of London's oldest licensed pubs and be amazed and ready to laugh throughout.

Tom was an excellent host and kept our group engaged throughout the whole walk. We stopped at some beautiful and distinct pubs throughout the ST James area and learned a lot of royal history. I highly recommend this tour (and Tom) to anyone who enjoys a good beer and a bit of fun history!

An amazing tour and a great guide. We were a small group and Tom made us feel like a private tour. He is funny and knows how to reach anyone. Learned a lot of new things about the royal family and enjoyed my time!

Al was a fantastic guide! So knowledgeable and had so many fun stories. He made everyone feel comfortable and we had such a great time. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in the history of the Royals or just trying to get a better understanding of London’s pub culture and history.

We really enjoyed the tour and learnt a lot about the history of famous British sayings and songs, the pub locations were also great too. I was most impressed however, by Carlos' historical knowledge as the group asked many questions that were off script and he still managed to answer them with ease!

We highly recommend Carlos as a tour guide for the Royal Historic Pubs of London Walking Tour. Carlos took us to several extraordinary pubs within blocks of one another. He clearly explained their early histories and significance to London’s pub scene as well as significant historic sites along the way. You will be lucky if Carlos is your guide!

Carlos was an excellent guide, weaving all sorts of interesting facts and stories of royalty and more into his narration as we wove through back alleys and quiet streets to find a selection of historic pubs. Would absolutely recommend for anyone looking to enjoy a different look at London while enjoying a pint (or a few).
