The Bramah Tea and Coffee Walk around London

This walk covers the main historical locations of the coffee and tea trade. The experience takes us around the City to see the first coffee house, the site of the East India Company, the docks and many other main trading places. Crossing the river over London’s oldest bridge and returning over the Millennium Bridge, gives a vivid experience of 400 years of history and the main events of a trade that changed the world.
