London Old Docks – Historic Pub Tour

As Featured In

Explore this old pirates & artists hangout, one historic pub at a time

If you’re visiting London or want to explore more of this vast city you call home, why not let us take you back in time to London’s historic old docks?

Here 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 with breathtaking riverside views of the city.

The dockers and pirates may be long gone, but the places they ate and drank in, and their stories are still very much alive. All served up with London’s best craft brews, ciders, and its finest pub grub, including more than a few dishes which are sure to wow! Dine on some fish and chips, traditional ‘bangers and mash’ and more – all paired with the perfect brew. Come along for an unforgettable trip back in time.
