About the Tour
Starts every day outside Liverpool Street Station at 11:00
This tour introduces you to London’s most creative and culturally diverse area. The East End is the bohemian heart of London, as famous now for its booming street art scene, fashion boutiques and curry houses as it once was infamous for its poverty, violence and gangsters. You’ll see work by street artists, including Banksy, as well as many others less well known, hear about the eccentric characters and waves of immigration that have shaped this area and hopefully get a feel for what makes this such an enduringly vibrant part of London. The tour takes about two hours.

Explore the haunted Blair Street Underground Vaults with access no other tour company can offer, then head to the Canongate graveyard, where the spirits of the dead await.
It might be something to do with the change in temperature. Or the perpetual darkness. Or the ever smaller rooms, stretching beyond the weak beam of a torch. Whatever the reason, there’s something unsettling about the Blair Street Underground Vaults – and your expert Mercat guide will reveal the troubling tales on this evening walking tour.
Cannibals. Body snatchers. Deals with the Devil. And that’s before we head underground.
Torture. Murder. Hangings. And that’s just what went on in the vaults.
A walk along dim streets to the Canongate graveyard will bring you to the resting place of the city’s most famous figures: Adam Smith, the father of economics; David Rizzio, the lover of Mary Queen of Scots; and James Douglas, 3rd Marquess of Queensberry – the infamous cannibal of the Canongate.

Nobody does ale like the English. From its humble use in the Middle Ages as a healthier substitute for drinking water, to its significant role in modern-day Britain’s £18 billion beer industry, no trip to London is complete without experiencing a few of the brews on offer.
Join us on this two and a half hour tour as we visit traditional pubs and modern craft beer bars alike, offering you either a taste or half a pint in three different locations. Learn how ale is made, where the different flavours and colours come from, and why English ale is unique to other beers around the world.
As we journey through the Borough Market area (famous for London’s historic watering holes), we’ll give you a cellar tour of a traditional English pub, we’ll tell you why this area is significant to the growth of ale production, and we’ll explain how ale trade was heavily affected by both World Wars.
