Embankment Tube, Villiers Street exit | Map

Guided by Richard III

Palaces & Pubs. Gaslit Lanes & Theatreland. Phantoms & Flashbulb Moments.* This is a great pub walk. It's vintage London, vortex London. It's "downtown" at its best. It's 18th-century gas-lit lanes and an ancient square and the oldest theatre in London. It's tucked-away, much-loved – and very old – pubs. It's where Londoners come to play. It's where visitors searching for the holy grail of Newsweek's "coolest city on earth" come closest to finding it. It's where high spirits and history rhyme. It's where the heart of this great city beats. It's where, more than anywhere else, you're going to feel London in your veins. (Food is available.) *E.G. raising a glass – which we'll do – with the orchestra of the Royal Opera House!
