This Funzing Experience:

Join the London Literary Pub Craw and Visit the public houses and taverns that inspired generations of writers and artists! Meet Dylan Thomas, Charles Dickens, Virginia Woolfe, George Orwell, Anthony Burgess, T.S Eliot and others! You will enjoy live extracts of some stunning works and encounters with long-gone writers!

Explore 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.

Starting in Fitzrovia, and ending in Soho, this three hour tour also includes the pubs and bars associated with the British Film industry and contemporary writers. So you never know who you might bump into...! The tour covers just over a mile, so is fairly gentle, but it's London, so sensible shoes, warm clothing and an umbrella may be a good idea. The tour will go ahead in spite of the weather!

No previous knowledge is assumed - indeed, part of the fun is discovering more about literature's household names. Groups are encouraged too.

About the London Literary Pub Crawl performance:

Less of a traditional tour and more of a guided performance!

  • See Anthony Burgess (A Clockwork Orange) threatened by a a real knife gang
  • Dylan Thomas meets his wife, Caitlin
  • T.S. Eliot renounces his US Citizenship to become British

This new and unique tour is artist-led and arranged by the not-for-profit charity The Maverick Theatre Company that involves local writers and artists from London's West End and the UK TV and Film industry. Not only will you enjoy a fantastic tour but you will also be supporting a current generation of writers and artists in London.
