Central London, London –
Practically a rite of passage for some residents and visitors alike, organized pub crawls take advantage of the variety, accessibility, and vitality of London’s social scene.
Although such events are often reserved for graduations, bachelor parties, or other special occasions, it may be worth one’s while to indulge in a crawl just to get an overall sense of the scene and to share a good experience with friends.
New laws now prohibit drinking alcohol on the tube and buses, which has dampened some of the pub crawl fun, but there’s still plenty of enjoyment to be had.
Though there are numerous pub crawls from which to choose, both guided and unguided, patrons might want to try one of the recommendations below.
Circle Line: Go to the nearest Circle Line tube stop (marked in yellow on tube maps) and buy a one-day pass. The Circle Line takes a bottle-shaped path around central London.
Take the tube to the next stop, go to the nearest pub, and drink a pint. Get back on the tube and repeat until the pub crawl group has made it around the entire loop of the Circle Line. With about twenty-six stops from end to end, this crawl will ensure a memorable day (and night) in the city.
Monopoly Pub Crawl: Give the crawl a Milton Bradley spin by making a stop at a pub located on each London property found on a British Monopoly board. With twenty-six locations to tackle, this makes for an all-day battle of wills.
Generate a Custom Crawl : The Pub Crawl Generator website allows groups to customize their pub crawl and set parameters such as neighborhoods, the number of pubs to be visited, and the maximum distance between pubs.
All types, mostly 20s.
