    What to Expect
    London is filled with amazing history – but if you want to feel like you’ve actually gone back in time hundreds of years, there’s nothing like visiting the historical pubs of old London town.

    Wapping is a waterside neighborhood of London, well off the beaten path. It was once home to a bustling trading port, full of thieves, dockers, sailors – even pirates! Now it’s a lot quieter – a residential area, lined with cobblestone lanes and old warehouse buildings.

    As you stroll along streets that haven't changed in generations, entering old wooden-beamed public houses, you can also fill your senses with traditional beer and other refreshments… Our historic pub food and drink tour will give you an in-depth look at the history of this area as you visit four traditional British pubs. You’ll drink the best British beer and try properly tasty British pub grub.

    The dockers and pirates may be long gone, but the places they ate and drank in, and their stories are still very much alive. So, if you love food, beer and a big serving of astounding stories from London history on top – this is the tour for you!

    - Explore five of London’s must- see pubs and savor their food, drink and unparalleled history
    -Taste some of Britain’s best traditional lagers, ales and fine craft brews
    -Savor classic pub grub over the chatter of friendly locals
    -Revel in tales of pirates, thieves and artists told in the same places they once called home
