In February Margarita will be doing her London 1902 -1916 – Seedbed of the Russian Revolution tour as a pub walk. Date TBA – Watch this space.
For the ‘regulars’ – all of them pretty “special” – see below.
Q. What’s a pub walk?
A. It’s a normal London Walk but it takes a bit longer because we work anywhere from one to four pubs into the mix. Pub walks are convivial. They’re a completely natural social situation. They’re a chance to sit down, a chance for some refreshment. What’s not to like?
Q. Sounds fun. When do they take place?
A. Short answer is see below. And up above for the Specials for the current time of the year. Pre-pandemic we did a pub walk every night of the week and two on Saturday. The pandemic put paid to that. But we’re slowly making a comeback. The gold standard pub walk is the Along the Thames Pub Walk. Some of the others listed below are not full-fledged pub walks but they have – or can have – a pub element (they end at a famous pub, e.g.). When that’s the case we make that clear.
Fridays (every Friday night in the summer season, and most Friday nights in the winter season) – it’s The Along the Thames Pub Walk
Wednesdays Hidden Pubs of Old London Town (every Wednesday evening in the summer season, May 1 – October 31 and quite a few Wednesday evenings in the Winter season).
Mondays Old Westminster by Gaslight (this one has a pub element – some of the walkers go to a parliamentary pub at walk’s end)
Tuesdays The Ancient City at Night (another “pub element” walk – it ends at London’s most famous pub, Dirty Dicks!)
