Take a plunge into the murky waters of London's maritime history with this hilarious immersive theatre pub tour... 

Starting in picturesque St Katherines Dock you and your friends will travel under the wing of an expert guide who will share tales of dark deeds in days gone by. Along the way keep your eyes open as you encounter an assortment of colourful characters including marauding pirates, ladies of the night and even royalty, all of whom will give you insights into the now vanished world of London docklands, once the largest and most notorious Port in the world…

We will be stopping along the way to wet our whistles and one of the many scenic Thames side drinking establishments, and finishing at the historic 'Prospect of Whitby' pub: Formerly known as 'the devils tavern' on account of its dubious reputation, but now a charming boozer serving top quality pub grub!

*Includes a free shot of rum courtesy of our friends at PIRATES GROG
