The London Monopoly Pub Crawl
This is a chance to get to know London and visit six very interesting pubs situated on or adjacent to the London Monopoly board layout. By visiting these pubs it allows you to visit some of London's famous landmarks, tourist attractions and some nice historic areas. All the pubs recommended in this pub crawl have been independently visited and assessed. No payment has been made to include the pub in the crawl. Other pubs on the board sequence can be visited by using one of the other four Pub Crawls in this five part series.
We promote sensible drinking. Therefore, when visiting any of these pubs or taverns please enjoy yourselves and experience the pleasure they offer.
Finally, in true Monopoly style, you don't need to be a 'Rich Uncle Pennybags' to drink in or at any of these pubs.
The Walk Itself:
This is a moderate and compact stroll of about 45 minutes walking time and covers about 2.0 miles in distance. It takes you along the Victoria Embankment and its gardens and river side views of the Thames. It also proceeds along Fleet Street and the Strand before meandering through the delights of Covent Garden and finally ending up in central London at Trafalgar Square. The walk includes five pubs to visit of which many have stunning and architecturally interesting interiors and one historically dates from 1667.
All the pubs visited offer a good beer selection and serve food.
Children are not allowed in the last pub, so this crawl is for adults only.
A couple of the pubs have limited access due to entrance steps or narrow , so wheel chair users would struggle to complete the route.
This is a walk for Weekdays and Saturdays only due to one of the oldest taverns in London (Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese) being closed on Sundays.
The Monopoly itinerary includes Fleet Street, Strand and Trafalgar Square (The three Red squares) located on side three of the board. Also, Bow Street (An Orange square) on side two and finally in true Monopoly fashion you are allowed take a Chance? on a pub venue.
Some of the pubs are close together so in between pub visits it's worth taking the time to explore the nearby attractions that have been identified.
