    Stop At: The Lamb, 94 Lambs Conduit Street Bloomsbury, London WC1N 3LZ England

    You will start your tour from Victorian-style interior pub, where Charles Dickens used to drink. English Heritage describes the pub as “an exceptional piece of Victoriana”.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Crown Tavern, 43 Clerkenwell Green, London EC1R 0EG England

    Continue your journey towards the tavern where Lenin used to drink before revolutionary matters took him to Russia. It is thought that he may even have conferred with Stalin on site. More recently it was the setting for a scene from Notes on a Scandal, starring Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett. There you will try a good pint of ale. ​

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Ye Olde Mitre, 1 Ely Court Ely Place, London EC1N 6SJ England

    Afterwards, you will get to one of the most difficult to find of all the pubs. It’s unashamedly traditional (no TVs), and long may that continue. The previous clientele is rumoured to have included Elizabeth I (one story goes that she danced around a cherry tree that is still there). your guide will take to the most famous pub for journalists since 1667. Countless literary grandees and journalists – from Samuel Johnson and Dickens to the Fleet Street hacks of the 20th century – have occupied a nook or cranny in its labyrinthine interior. You will try a pint in the pub where beer cellars are former cells of the prison.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Blackfriars Bridge, London England

    You will see the weird pub with the extravagance of its religious-themed art nouveau interior.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: The Seven Stars, 53 Carey Street, London WC2A 2JB England

    One of the few places in the area to survive the Great Fire of London, the tiny Seven Stars pub now has more than four centuries of history behind it. Located just behind the Royal Courts of Justice, it is a natural stomping ground for the pinstripes of the legal profession.
