I would like to organize a pub crawl of central London – zone 1.

  • Minimum 6 pubs, preferably 8
  • located close to each other; a strong preference for walking, although I could live with one cab trip between two areas
  • historic pubs would be nice; certainly “olde” looking
  • not J.D Wetherspoon type chain pubs, which are more restaurant than bar
  • preferably real boozers; locals rather than tourist places

Any suggestion?

  • The Porcupine, 48 Charing Cross Road
  • The Crown, 51 New Oxford Street
  • The Edgar Wallace, 40 Essex Street (my favorite!)
  • The Swan, 7 Cosmo Place
  • The Grapes, 14 Lime Street (there is another lovely pub with the same name at Narrow Street but that's not zone 1 anymore)
  • The Cock & Woolpack, 6 Finch Lane
  • Ye Old Mitre, 1 Ely court
  • The Blackfriar, 174 Queen Victoria Street

... and many more

    Excellent (+1). But you would really improve it by giving street names for all (plus a few more pubs ;-) If I had spare time, I would also give the walking time or distance between each :-) – Mawg says reinstate Monica Feb 1 '19 at 9:39
  • "I would also give the walking time or distance between each" well, google is your friend ;-) – NicolasB Feb 1 '19 at 10:27

    I added a map of the crawl, which is pretty long (4.3 miles, 1h30 after reordering the pubs a bit) – jcaron Feb 1 '19 at 11:07

    Edit: I had to change the map since I put in the wrong adress for The Crown (appologies!). Note: The Crown can also be entered throught the back entrance on Shaftsbury Avenue. – NicolasB Feb 1 '19 at 13:17

    @Mawg Since you aren't new here, you should know that we don't do this kind of question, here. Teaching Nicolas how to answer off-topic questions isn't really helpful. – David Richerby Feb 1 '19 at 14:06
