Here’s the plan…  

You’ll meet your guide by the winged statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus before they take you on tour into the hidden world of London’s pubs and the scintillating history of the Royal family.

You’ll pass by some of London’s most recognised landmarks, parks, palaces and old boutiques. You’ll trend down paths that only locals know, before stopping off in the first of your four pubs. At each pub stop, your guide will weave together tales of the Royal Family. The scandals, the intrigue. You’ll learn of the attempt to assassinate Queen Victoria among others. Between each stop there’s plenty of sightseeing, Buckingham Palace, St James’s park for instance and many more tales to be told. Woven together as you enjoy London’s unique pub atmosphere. 

With your final destination near Westminster. This is a Royal tour where hidden gems are revealed on every street corner. If you thought you knew London before the tour, you certainly will after it!
