Going to a pub is essential for properly experiencing British culture. Not going to a pub while in England is equivalent to not having pasta in Italy; pubs are ingrained in the country's culture. If you want to experience pub culture beyond simply grabbing a drink, consider a tour with London's Liquid History Tours. Liquid History Tours takes visitors to some of the city's most notable pub and ale houses, adding a bit of history and fun facts about the pub and area along the way. Stops include the Ye Old Cheshire Cheese, which has hosted the likes of Charles Dickens, and the Old Bank of England, which acted as the former law courts of the Bank of England.

Past travelers loved visiting the chosen pubs and hearing the stories behind them, giving major kudos to the guides for keeping the tours so engaging throughout.

Three-hour Liquid History Tours cost 25 pounds (about $33) and take place at 2 p.m. every day except Monday. Tours meet up at Exit 2 at St. Paul's Tube station, which services the Central Line. It's important to know that advanced bookings are required. For more information on Liquid History Tours, visit its website.

What's more, it's free to visit. From the Rosetta Stone to the Elgin Marbles to the Lindow Man, the British Museum is a history buff's dream containing artifacts in the millions.
