The Perfect London Pub Crawl

6 February 2012

A London pub crawl is a great way to meet the locals and experience the huge variety of pubs and bars London has to offer. Erin Hinschen from Flight Centre Whitsunday has some first-hand advice for any would-be London pub crawlers. 

Camden pub crawl

 London at Night

A pub crawl through Camden is an unforgettable experience for music lovers, or basically anyone who appreciates the atmosphere and décor of English pubs. For the perfect Camden crawl, pay a visit to these eight unique watering holes:

  • The World's End - directly across the road from Camden Station, making it the perfect place to kick off your pub crawl.
  • KOKO - catch a live band and enjoy dancing on the old sprung floors inside this former theatre.
  • The Purple Turtle - a classically dingy live music venue known for its wild DJ nights and cheap drink deals.
  • Green Note - popular vegetarian café-bar by day and live music venue by night, with live performances seven days a week.
  • Dublin Castle - cheap drinks before 6pm and live music every night, followed by DJs on Friday and Saturday nights.
  • Elephant's Head - enjoy a beer on the canal with good old rockabilly tunes.
  • The Barfly - famous for hosting some of the world's biggest bands before they hit stardom, including the Killers, Coldplay and the Strokes.
Camden truly is every music-lover's dream destination - so put on your dancing shoes and see what all the fuss is about.
A London pub with an eerie difference
If you love ghouls and goblins, or pubs that are just a little different, visit the Marlborough Head in Mayfair, only a block from Oxford Street. You'll first enter a dimly lit room with gargoyles and mummies lurking in the corners and classic Gothic furniture and trimmings. It's a challenge to find the bathrooms, hidden by a classic bookcase secret door, complete with eerie sound effects on entry. If the whole horror theme isn't your thing, visit the Marlborough Head during the day for a classic pub atmosphere and great food.
