2. Historic London Pubs Tour 1 - The Pub Crawl

A Pub Crawl, so named in the finest English tradition because in the old days and indeed not so old days, pub drinkers would stop off for a drink at as many pubs as they could until they were reduced to crawling between venues. This traditional pub walk will visit some of the finest old pubs in London.  Each one with a very different atmosphere and history but all sharing a fine offering of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks in a wonderful building. From the fringes of the East End, visit pubs in Clerkenwell and Farringdon before going to some truly historic pubs in Holborn and Lincoln’s Inn Fields. Visit 6 old pubs, all of them going back to The Great Fire of London and some even earlier, each with their own character and history to tell. Enjoy an unhurried drink in a very special and unspoiled location just as Londoners do.
