Belgravia is one of London's most exclusive areas but in the mews areas behind the grand squares can be found some of the most historic and picturesque pubs in the whole of London. Joanna will take you on a tour of Belgravia which will include visits to three of the most interesting and cosy pubs in the area. On our walk, we will pass some other pubs and buildings of note including the pub which is linked to the disappearance of Lord Lucan, see a pub connected with the Beatles and a hidden mansion together with an exclusive dining club located in a converted church. We will stop in the pub where it is said the Great Train Robbery was planned, a rather eccentric hostelry off one of Belgravia's exclusive shopping streets and we will finish close to Hyde Park Corner tube station in the pub that was Wellington's local and is said to be haunted too.
The tour will start outside STA Travel in Grosvenor Gardens SW1W 0AU (turn left out of the front entrance of Victoria Station, walk past Superdrug and you will see STA across the road). The walk lasts approximately three hours including half an hour in each of two pubs and finishes in a third pub close to Hyde Park Corner tube.
Due to the nature of this walk it is open to over 18s only.
