Walk of the Week: The Literary #London Pub Walk

Every Sunday we’ll pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks repertoire and put it centre stage.

You can check out the full schedule at

But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it…

The Write Stuff

7 pm on Wednesdays from HolbornTube

There's no need to book. A London Walk takes about two hours and costs £10 or £8 for concs. (Kids under 15 accompanied by their parent[s] go free)

Welcome to Brian's Wednesday evening literary soire! The company's beyond compare: your good selves and the shades of Dickens and Thackeray; Oscar Wilde and G. B. Shaw; Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury Circle (who lived in Squares and loved in triangles); George Orwell, W. B. Yeats and T. S. Eliot. The venue's a moveable feast: a procession of handsome Georgian squares; the humming little warren of streets in the Museum quarter; and a couple of the best old pubs in London. The host's a born raconteur. And depend on it, he'll stir things a bit – tell you a thing or two about the aforementioned – how they were flesh and blood men and women who lived, loved, laughed, caroused, quarrelled and spun "words so nimble, so full of subtle flame..." . (Food is available.) Brian requests the pleasure of your company... 

The Literary London Pub Walk takes place every Wednesday evening at 7 pm

Meet Brian just outside the main exit of Holborn Tube.

Holborn Tube is on the Central & Piccadilly Lines

NEW: This week we're starting a brand new blog series written by Literary London Pub Walk guide Brian. It's called Wordy Wednesday and it will run for 12 weeks presenting a literary London nugget, one-liner, factoid or recommendation by way of a preview of his Wednesday walk. Starts on the 6th May!

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at
