Starting at the fantastic Borough Market where we have a surprise pub for you where William Shakespeare used to enjoy his tipple. We then grab a quick bite to eat (if we start early) and head off towards Tower Bridge. Another one of his famous haunts is the Dicken’s Inn in St Katharine’s Dock where the very same used to be a regular.

You do though because next up is one of the most iconic riverside pubs, the Captain Kidd.
