Activity Overview
THE LONDON LITERARY PUB CRAWL, WITH CHARLES DICKENS (DECEASED!)

VISIT THE PUBLIC HOUSES AND TAVERNS THAT INSPIRED PREVIOUS GENERATIONS OF WRITERS AND ARTISTS. AND MEET DYLAN THOMAS,CHARLES DICKENS, VIRGINIA WOOLF, GEORGE ORWELL, ANTHONY BURGESS, T.S ELIOT AND OTHERS. AND SUPPORT NEW LONDON WRITERS!

See where the giants of the literary world ate, drank, discussed, thought and worked. The pubs and taverns that inspired some of the greatest creative minds in the world - and still do.
This new and unique tour is artist-led and arranged by the not-for-profit charity The Maverick Theatre Company. It involves local writers and artists from London's West End and the UK TV and Film industry. There's a lovely synergy, that by coming on our tour, you are supporting a current generation of (usually!) struggling writers and artists in London!
We are delighted to announce that the late Charles Dickens (and occasionally the late Virginia Woolf) have agreed to host the tour! It takes in not only the history of literature in London but some of its contemporary places and spaces too - including those relevant to songwriters such as Sir Paul McCartney and Jimi Hendrix - and looks at some key elements in our writers' lives.
Starting in Fitzrovia, and ending in Soho, our tour also includes those pubs and bars associated with the British Film industry and contemporary writers. So you never know who you might bump into...!
 
Practical information
We start in central London, W1. The tour takes 2-3 hours, depending on the group and we end up in Soho. It's not too far - just over a mile. Drinking is optional - it's more about the writers and their pubs!
 
Included
  • Tour guide. Occasional appearance by the ghost of Charles Dickens!
