Hi, We’re Beard and Bald.

Both veteran tour guides that have been leading experiences in London for the last 7 years.

Beard (Linton), is an entertainer by nature and a veteran guide of many years. He has degrees in Archaeology and Anthropology and has travelled to countless different countries to meet as many new and interesting people as possible.

Bald (Glenn), is a folk singing history enthusiast that knows London like the back of his hand. When he’s not entertaining the crowds on stage, he’s leading them through London one pub at a time!

Beard and Bald have spent almost a decade exploring London's hidden gems and best locations and have shared them with literally thousands of travellers from all over the world.

Even as a Brit this experience was great! Was really interesting to learn about the history of why we drink in certain ways. Glenn is very knowledgable and easy going, we really enjoyed chatting to him and will definitely attend one of the in person tours as soon as it's safe and possible to do so.

The experience was honestly way better than what I expected. Glenn was not only warm, funny, and engaging, but it was clear that he took it seriously and was well prepared. Despite it being centered around drinking and pub culture, there was also a level of professionalism that was unexpected. Put simply, it was a great time.

I wasn't sure what to expect when we booked this to celebrate a friend's birthday, but it was a fun way to spend 90 minutes having socially distant beers with friends while learning a bit about London pub culture. Glenn has clearly put a lot of thought into how to design an interactive Zoom program.

Definitely check this one out if you can. Glenn was a great host and told interesting stories and anecdotes. We can't actually go to a British pub right now but this is the next best thing.

This is truly an enjoyable experience. If you’re poking around here reading these reviews, just book it and enjoy your time with Glenn. He is extremely knowledgeable and friendly and we all had an absolute fantastic evening together. I spent several months living in London in 2015 and I still learned a lot about pub culture and cannot wait to go back as soon as possible. I would 100% book an in person tour with Glenn in London and pay extra to keep it going after the scheduled end time — there is just too much to learn and enjoy. We had a really great time and I’m delighted that Glenn has adapted his tours to benefit Americans who can’t travel abroad. Thanks Glenn!

This tour is amazing...book it! We toured with Bald, and he was lovely. My BF shared with him that this was a replacement for me to a trip we had planned to the UK for my birthday to go to an Elton John concert...and so Beard created a special Elton trivia section for our tour. We had a wonderful couple hours, a few tasty beers, made a new friend, and supported a worthwhile cause. We can’t wait to go on a tour in person once we can travel again.
