Description

THE PERFECT GIFT FOR THOSE WHO LOVE LONDON. An illustrated guide to London’s best pubs and their extraordinary history, presented by the founder of the world-famous Liquid History Tours. Pull up a stool for a thirst-quenching trundle through London’s liquid history in search of the city’s greatest pubs.

We raise a toast in Shakespeare’s local, pop in for a pint at Jack the Ripper’s bar and push open the bloodstained doors of the Bucket of Blood. Liquid History is a beautifully illustrated love letter to London’s finest hostelries, written by the city’s leading pub tour guide and host of the celebrated Liquid History Tours.

Profiling over 50 timeless boozers, this book tells the story of London’s history and the taverns that have hosted, harboured and refreshed its leading characters. Exploring the watering holes of London’s writers and artists, its most notorious criminals and celebrated figures, we move from architectural marvels to secretive backstreet boozers to join the dots for London’s ultimate knees-up.
