We're Doing A Dickens Pub Crawl. Want To Come?

We're coming up to the 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens's birth and there's lots happening to celebrate. We thought we'd honour our city's Victorian bard by raising a glass - or six - in pubs with a Dickensian connection this Saturday (there were plenty we could have chosen from, but this collection made a relatively sensible route.)

Come do the crawl with us - and if you can't start at the Grapes, you can follow our progress on Twitter @Londonist.

3pm: The Grapes, 76 Narrow Street, Limehouse
Apparently this pub was the inspiration for Our Mutual Friend's Six Jolly Fellowship Porters

4.30pm: Artful Dodger, 47 Royal Mint Street E1
This doesn't need explaining, does it?

5.45pm: George Inn, 77 Borough High Street SE1
Gets a mention in Little Dorrit

6.45pm: Charles Dickens, 160 Union Street SE1
Of all the pubs named after Dickens in London, we're plumping for this in Dickensian Southwark

8.30pm: The Boot, 116 Cromer Street, Kings Cross
The pub features in Barnaby Rudge

10pm: Betsey Trotwood, 56 Farringdon Road EC1
The character of Betsey is David Copperfield's great aunt.
