Tour Locations | Historical Pubs of London: A Tipply Trundle Through Liquid History
Hello and welcome to our historic pub walk! My name is John Warland, founder of the award-winning Liquid History Tours and today I'll be guiding you on a light-hearted tipply trundle down the street of shame.
With over 3000 pubs still pouring pints in London I've hand-picked an eclectic selection to highlight the ones that bookend our history as much as the streetscape around us. It's going to be a walk full of quirky history, sozzled stories and of course 4 or 5 cracking boozers to pause for a pint in along the way.
If you do stop for a drink, and of course I highly recommend it, then you can pause the audio or just close off the tour, and resume it when you're ready to move on. VoiceMap plays audio automatically as you stroll, and if there's something worth pausing for, I'll let you know. So just pop your phone in your pocket, walk straight on unless otherwise advised and enjoy all the sights and sounds around you.
So without further ado, let's head to our first pub.
If you're facing Blackfriars station then look left across the road, and you'll see the slither of building that is the beautiful Blackfriar pub. It might not look much from here but it's totally unique and a real must-see full of museum quality artworks. Let’s head over there via the pedestrian crossing and I'll meet you along the way.
