The pub crawl is a celebrated part of British culture. The Londonist Book of London Pub Crawls takes you on a tour of the capital’s best pubs and bars with ten guided walks. Some show you the most atmospheric hostelries in a particular area, such as Shoreditch or Borough. Other take a special theme, like a tour of literary pubs, or drinking dens with scientific connections. Or follow in the footsteps of Karl Marx who, as a youngster, visited every pub on Tottenham Court Road, before drunkenly smashing all the gas lamps. We don’t recommend you do that bit, though.
