monopoly pub crawl

Share

The concept of the Monopoly Pub Crawl is simple. Drinkers must visit 26 pubs in one day, with each pub corresponding to a square on the Monopoly Board. Whilst our route may not follow the exact direction of the board, it is the most efficient, leaving you maximum drinking time plus some to spare at the end for a kebab stop, if you’re still standing that is. So grab your Oyster Card, head to Old Kent Road, and remember to collect 200 smackers as you pass GO.

The George

The only place on the board south of the river, expect to spot other pub crawlers at this popular starting point.

Old Kent Road

The Fen

Head inside Fenchurch Street Station to find this tiny pub on the station concourse.

Fenchurch Street Station

The White Hart Brew Pub

A proper East End boozer, plus they have BOARD GAMES.

Whitechapel Road

Hamilton Hall

The former ballroom of the Great Eastern Hotel, this pub is a little bit fancy. Do. Not. Do. A. Sick.

Liverpool Street Station

The Angel, Islington

This may seem like your average 'Spoons' but this pub has history- the original Angel Inn dates back to 1639. Respect your elders.

The Angel

The Castle

Soak up the sun on The Castle’s massive roof terrace. Bonus fact: this is where the infamous Hatton Garden raid was planned. Check your pockets.

Pentonville Road

O'Neills

Yup, it’s an O’Neill., so order a steak and Guinness pie to keep your pint company. But be quick about it.

King's Cross Station

The Euston Flyer

A stone’s throw from King’s Cross, there’s plenty of train-themed nuggets here to keep you amused. Chug Chug.

Euston Road

Victoria and Albert

The Victoria and Albert, tucked inside Marylebone station, is the final station pub on the list. But you're not off this ride just yet.

Marylebone Station

Rose & Crown

There’s a rumour floating around that the Rose & Crown forbids Monopoly pub crawlers, but as it’s the only pub on Park Lane, you’ll have to give it a go, just act normal.

Park Lane

Ye Grapes

If you’re getting pretty hungry by this point, re-fuel at Ye Grapes with some home-cooked Thai food. You can thank us later.

Mayfair

Henry's Cafe Bar

One of the more stylish places on our list - it is opposite the Ritz after all - Henry’s Café Bar boasts chic furniture and a wide cocktail menu.

Piccadilly

The Red Lion

Hidden down a tiny passageway off Pall Mall, The Red Lion is believed to be the second oldest pub in London. Erm, I.D please!

Pall Mall

Spread Eagle

Not to be confused with Hackney’s 100% vegan pub of the same name, this is an old-school boozer without a hipster in sight.

Bond Street

The Argyll Arms

It might look a little touristy on the outside, but the authentic Victorian interior is enough to redeem The Argyll Arms.

Oxford Street

O'Neills

Ok, so we’ve already had an O’Neills, but this one on the corner of Carnaby Street has fab outdoor seating for people-watching.

Marlborough Street

Gem Bar

There’s a shortage of actual pubs on Regent Street, so hit up Gem Bar for cocktails and beer pong. Just don't lose.

Regent Street

The Warwick

The Warwick is huge and nearly always open until 3am - perf if you're still crawling into the early hours.

Vine Street

The Comedy Pub

Just as the name suggests, The Comedy Pub hosts live stand-up comedy nights every Friday and Saturday.

Coventry Street

The Moon Under Water

This place is named after George Orwell’s description of the ideal pub, although we’re not sure this is what he had in mind.

Leicester Square

The Lord Moon of the Mall

Located towards the Trafalgar Square end of Whitehall, this is your traditional boozer, complete with quiz machines and everything.

Pall Mall

The Sherlock Holmes

This spot is packed with Sherlock Holmes memorabilia (as you might have deduced).

Northumberland Avenue

Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese

A former brothel, monastery and Charles Dickens’ local (whew!), this is defo one of London’s most historic pubs.

Fleet Street

The Wellington

Slap bang in the middle of the Strand, prepare to battle through tourists and theatre-goers for a spot at The Wellington's bar.

The Strand

The Sun Tavern

By this point in the crawl, you’ll probably want to sit and relax, so do it here in front of the open fire. Don’t get too comfortable though…

Bow Street

The Chandos

We could tell you all about the great features in The Chandos, but by this point you probably won’t notice ‘em. Congrats if you’ve got this far, you deserve a drink!

Trafalgar Square
