Join actors, musicians, and Dr Matthew Green for an immersive whirlwind tour of London’s original – and best – coffeehouses. From Cornhill’s labyrinth of medieval streets to the towering Monument, find out how "bitter Mohammedan gruel" transformed the face of the city, brought people together, and inspired brilliant ideas that shape the world we live in today.
Includes free shots of 17th-century coffe!
We will finish at the Taylor Street Baristas' Coffee Gallery in Monument for an optional coffee-tasting session. You'll sip a range of exotic coffees brewed by world-class baristas accompanied by a short talk on the alchemy of coffee preparation.
Dr Green will meet you by the steps of St Michael's Church, Cornhill at 3pm for this critically acclaimed tour as featured by the BBC, Time Out, Guardian and Telegraph. The tour lasts around 1hr 30 minutes.
