What We’ll Do
We’ll take a guided tour of the most interesting and characterful pubs in London's Notting Hill and Kensington. We’ll venture away from the tourist routes and explore the backstreets, where the local people drink. These are the same pubs that I still enjoy visiting with my friends, and they are well known for their fine beers, good food and friendly atmosphere.
We’ll sample the wide variety of wonderful, traditional British, full-flavored cask ales (the original craft beers), as well as modern craft beers offered in these unique establishments.
NB. Other alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, will also be available.
Marvel at the immaculately-maintained Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian architecture of these charming neighborhoods. Their numerous blue plaques identify the buildings, which were once owned by significant historical figures, such as the detective novelist and playwright, Agatha Christie, and American poet, Ezra Pound. You can also see the home where the triple-Oscar-winning actor, Daniel Day-Lewis, was born. Savor the abundant varieties of plants and trees, and also the diverse architecture of the local churches, as we walk between pubs, in what are arguably the most stunningly beautiful neighbourhoods of inner London.
After going out in this area for years, several pubs have become firm favorites. One was where Freddie Mercury of Queen, regularly had a drink or two, and another where Meghan Markle had drinks prior to leaving for dinner to meet Prince Harry. We’ll be visiting a few of them, each with its own character, history and selection of exquisite beers.
Full meals and snacks are offered at all of the pubs and are usually available until 9:30 p.m.
