PRIVATE Ginsanity: The History Of Gin Walking Tour: For Six

£240.00 Regular price

Learn about gin's dark history of madness in this brilliant, London walking tour.  Including two delicious gin’s along the way.

You could be forgiven for thinking that craft Gin is a new concept. Far from it. In the 18th century there were over 1000 stills in the square mile of City of London. Such was the popularity of this delicious clear tipple that it lead to an increase in insanity, with the East End home to several mad houses, including Europe’s oldest psychiatric hospital Bedlam. In this Ginsanity walking tour you will be learning why London had the highest percentage of ‘mad’ people to any city in Europe. Learn the origins of such phrases as ‘going round the bend’ and ‘mad as a hatter’.


This is a ticket for one person. All you need bring is a good pair of comfy walking shoes and a thirst for knowledge. Two gins are included in the ticket price.

This is a private tour for up to six people. If you would like to add extra people to the group contact


The tour begins at St Paul's Underground station and ends at Old Street. You'll be given more directions on booking in.
