Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: The Harp, 47 Chandos Pl, Charing Cross, London WC2N 4HS, UK

This charming little pub is often voted the top pub in London and is a firm favourite with all of our guides - some of whom would rather keep this fantastic place to themselves!

Often packed inside and out, this pub is not to be missed, and we would recommend that if a seat is available, or if you have sturdy legs, that we spend slightly longer here than at the other pubs that we will visit on this tour. The Harp's popularity is not only due to the fantastic quality drinks that are available but also because this is a place where many local londoners and those from further afield love to drink.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: The Chandos, 29 St Martin's Ln, Charing Cross, London WC2N 4ER, UK

This is one of a handful of unique Sam Smith pubs in London. Famous for its own brands of beer, wine, cider and spirits it is a pub not to be missed.

Here your guide will tell you how this delightful public house inspired one of the greatest Sherlock Holmes stories of all time, and how the pub gained its Sherlockian name in the 1950's.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Gordon's Wine Bar, 47 Villiers St, Charing Cross, London WC2N 6NE, UK

Our final stop is not a pub but is too good to miss. Gordon's wine bar, the oldest wine bar in London, is a sight to behold and is an experience unlike any other in London. With barrels on the walls and food platters of cheese and meats that are to die for, Gordons is the perfect place to while away the hours with good friends, good food and excellent drink. Once you have settled our guide will leave you to soak up the ambience of the bar safe in the knowledge that you are only a short walk away from Embankment Station.
