Short read: Pub Walking in London’s Old Latin Quarter.
Long read: 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. Guided by David
BOHEMIAN FITZROVIA – THE PRACTICALS
The Fitzrovia Pub Walk takes place at 7.15 pm on Saturday, March 7 and at 7.15 pm on Saturday, May 30.
Meet David just outside the exit of Goodge Street Tube. N.B. the walk ends very near Oxford Circus Tube.
LONDON WALKS PRIVATE WALKS
If you can’t make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Mountain Building & Meteorites in the City of London walks it can always be booked as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Bohemian Fitzrovia walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We’ll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they’re good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.
