Pub Walking in London’s Old Latin Quarter. The Fitzrovia Pub Walk is built along those same classic London Walks lines that the Rotherhithe walk is. Namely, it’s very central but socially it’s on the edge, on the margin. And that’s a potent combination. A potent combination because it means the area has always attracted “misfits” – artistic and literary and musical “misfits”. (Let alone odds and ends like the last hangman in Britain or Alastair Crowley, the black magician.) Attracted them because the area was cheap, it was affordable. So it’s a real “find.” It’s got great pubs, great history – it’s chock-a-block with those “moments” London Walks specialises in. Those I-never-knew-this-was-here – never-knew-that moments.
