A Victoria Park Pub Crawl

Each month, we pick an area of town to explore via a pub crawl. August's location is Victoria Park. We asked you to vote for your favourite boozers in the area, and you duly obliged. Here are the rankings:

1. Eleanor Arms
2. The Hemmingway
3. The Lauriston
=4. Royal Inn on the Park
=4. The Crown

Just missing out of the top five were the Palm Tree (excellent, unique place... but perhaps a bit far from the park to elicit many votes), the Approach Tavern (ditto), and the People's Park Tavern (formerly the Britannia). We suspect the Eleanor Arms did a fair bit of hustling, as it had zero votes for the first 24 hours of voting, followed by a sudden wave of nominations that took it to first place. But all's fair in love and pub-votes, and other sites back up the popularity.

Map of nominated pubs

On the map below, gold stars show the five winning pubs, which we're going to do a pub crawl around. These five will also find their way into our Best Pubs in London microsite (give it a go, if you've not seen it).

Pub crawl

We're going to run the pub crawl on Tuesday 12 August. If you'd like to join us, please email [email protected] to reserve spaces. (We like to keep an eye on numbers, so as not to overwhelm the bar staff.) It's always a lot of fun, and a good way to meet other London pub explorers (and you get a Londonist booze badge if it's your first time).

Here's the itinerary:

From 5.30pm: meet in The Hemmingway (we'll reserve some space)
7pm: The Lauriston
8pm: Royal Inn on the Park
9pm: The Crown
10pm till closing: The Eleanor Arms

Londonist Pub Crawls

Having completed an ‘A-Z’ of areas, we’re now choosing other interesting parts of town. Vote-winning pubs will be added to our Best Pubs in London microsite.
