A guided walk to visit and learn about the history of some of Fitzrovia’s famous pubs will take place tonight (Tuesday 23 June 2015) as part of Fitzrovia Festival 2015.
Mike Pentelow, editor and features editor of Fitzrovia News, co-author of A Pub Crawl Through History: The Ultimate Boozers’ Who’s Who, and Freedom Pass London: Make the Most of Your Travel Pass – 25 Special Days Out, will lead a walk to five of Fitzrovia’a historic hostelries stopping off in each one to have some liquid refreshment and to talk about the pubs local and historical significance.
Fitzrovia News has had many requests to revamp our infamous pub crawl of 2011 where the editors visited every single one of the neighbourhood’s 46 pubs.
But Pentelow decided it was a rather large undertaking and commitment so came up with a select view to visit and talk about. (We’ll think about a longer crawl in the future.)
A pub crawl through history: Guided walk and talk — 6.30pm Tuesday 23 June 2015. Meet outside Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Centre, 39 Tottenham Street, London W1T 4RX. Free. See the full list of Fitzrovia Festival events.
