Coffeehouse Tour

Some say coffee, not tea, built the British Empire

Ugh. The dreaded coffee shop chains. A dismal version of our brilliant coffee culture history, if you ask us. But if you think it’s just us, take a whirl on this tour where your guides (who are actors, musicians, & doctors) will march you through the City’s medieval streets, through St. Paul’s Churchyard, down Fleet Street, & into the cobbled courtyards of the Temple. Trace back 350 years where a Greek visionary (with a twirly stache, but of course) & a shocking English accent sold his first foul-looking liquid to the public. This tour is a caffeine freak’s dream. Oh, & did we mention free shots (of black gritty coffee, don’t get too excited), brewed post-18th century style, are included. General admission. Please arrive on time.
