What you’ll do

In a city with such a strong brewing heritage, how could you not want to taste London's finest, strangest and most innovative beers? It would be a shame not to.

So get ready for the ultimate beer adventure with one of our local London hosts who will take you on a journey through London’s brewing legacy.

You'll discover a pocket of London where tradition meets innovation, and bankers of the City rub shoulders with hipsters in trendy Shoreditch as you sip your way around the best pubs, craft beer bars and independent breweries in this area of east London.

You'll taste an eclectic variety of beers, from the absolute classics like real ales to innovative new brews created by small microbreweries, and indulge in a platter of artisan cured meats and regional cheeses along the way too!

London is famous for its traditional pubs, but as well as the old you’ll discover the best new brews around, visiting trendy craft beer bars and microbreweries where you can learn how each batch is made, take a look around and see for yourself.

As you zigzag through the streets, soak up the history and discover unique spots where brewing history took place, visiting landmarks like the Old Truman Brewery and try one of their signature brews in a nearby pub.

It doesn't end there though. You'll visit a trendy new microbrewery, sampling the best of what’s on offer, and you’ll see why London’s craft beer scene is exploding and the capital is embracing once again locally brewed beers from small batch breweries.

The final stop on your beer adventure has to be a hip craft beer bar, where with the help of your host and the friendly bar staff you’ll be able to sample a couple of the dozens of beers, ales and lagers on tap before you settle on your final pint! Sound like fun to us.

My husband loved this!

I booked this experience as a surprise for my husband. He loves beer and I know he enjoys trying local specialities... I wanted to book something which could be insightful and fun to do together in London, not too geeky as that would have been boring for me. So I found CityUnscripted and this is exactly what I was hoping for! We were matched with Bertie, who is similar age as us and loves travel and cares for the environment, just like us. I told him that my husband loved beer but I am more a gin person. He took us to some of his favourite places and we had a great time together! Bertie was generous with his time and shared loads of fun stories. Thank you!

Thank you for the happy memories

Gessica is a lovely young woman who has acquired a general knowledge of London through her student days. She is adaptable as to tour locations, and can ensure that you see what you particularly want to explore. I enjoyed my tour of Regent, Oxford and Carnaby streets with lunch at the Old George Inn. You will also gain much needed confidence in getting around by Underground during your stay in London.

Fabulous bespoke tour

City Unscripted listened to what type of tour we wanted it - and our fabulous tour guide Naomi provided it! We booked a bespoke tour to entertain a group of corporate clients and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
