Beer and Gin History London Pub Tour

Take a free tour through London’s famous theatre district of Covent Garden and stop for a drink in 5 classic pubs including one of the oldest pubs in London and another voted Best Pub in London 2019, all 5 with their own unique character and history. We will also check out the oldest wine bar in London and you will get a chance in several of the pubs to sample craft ales from local breweries and gins from local distilleries. Find out the answers to the following questions!

What was the Great London Beer Flood and where did it take place?

Where did condemned men get their last bowl of ale on the road to the Tyburn gallows?

Why is Gin called “Mother’s Ruin”?

Why was the Lamb and Flag pub called the “Bucket of Blood”?

What exactly were the original Gin Palaces and are there any left?

We’ll be stopping for around 15-20 minutes to have a quick drink in each pub (if drinking beer a half pint is recommended) so don’t forget to bring some money for the drinks!
