Full description

Discover some of the best Bermondsey breweries on this tour in London. Hear about the history of brewing in the area and the modern day ‘craft beer’ boom kicked off by the Kernel Brewery in 2009.

You’ll enjoy a walking tour along almost the whole length of the Bermondsey "Beer Mile", from Southwark Brewing close to Tower Bridge to Partizan Brewing at South Bermondsey. Overall it's an easy walk of around 1.6 miles or 2.5 km.

Along the way you'll taste a range of different beers in the atmospheric surrounds of characteristic railway arch taprooms. And we'll take you behind the scenes to discover what goes into making great beer, in the company of your expert guide and sometimes brewery staff too.

There are now so many breweries along this short stretch of railway we can't hope to visit them all. The breweries we visit may vary according to availability, but we always aim to offer a varied experience from traditional cask beer to cutting edge contemporary craft beer, and include both smaller and larger operators, all of them independent businesses with strong links to the local community.

Currently the tour normally includes a brewery visit at Southwark Brewery, a mini-tutored tasting at the Kernel, a call at Three Hills or Spartan and a closer look at the brewing kit at Partizan. Please note that stops can change due to external factors such as special events taking place.

Ticket price includes:

  • Expert guiding including beer recommendations
  • Your beer tastings

What to bring

  • Passport or photo ID
  • Comfortable shoes
  • Dress appropriate for the weather
  • A sandwich or snack if you need to eat along the way, as there isn't always time to stop for street food

You must be 18 or over to join this tour.

Sorry, but we can't accept under-18s in any circumstances and reserve the right to ask for proof of age.

Know before you go

  • This is a tasting and discovery tour aimed at people who want to learn a little more about London brewing and discover new beers in convivial company.
  • All venues on the tour have step-free access and several have accessible toilets, though there are occasional kerbs along our route.
  • At least one tasting at each stop, depending on beers available on the day.
  • There is no scheduled lunch break, though there are limited opportunities to buy street food along the way.
  • Well-behaved dogs are welcome in all the taprooms we visit but not "behind the scenes" in the brewhouses for hygiene reasons, so if you bring a dog, you will likely miss out on substantial sections of the tour as you will need to look after it in the taproom when the other guests visit the brewhouse.
  • The start at Southwark Brewery is 0.5 miles (0.8 km), 10-15 minutes walk, from London Bridge station: follow St Thomas Street and Druid Street.
  • We aim to finish at Partizan Brewery by 16:00 hrs (4 pm): please allow at least half an hour to finish your drinks if planning a later appointment.
  • The tour finishes close to South Bermondsey National Rail station and bus stops with frequent services to Underground and Overground stations.
  • Des de Moor hosts most tours but may occasionally deputise to an equally expert and experienced guide.
