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 only place on the board south of the river, expect to spot other pub crawlers at this popular starting point.
Old Kent Road
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
The Argyll Arms
It might look a little touristy on the outside, but the authentic Victorian interior is enough to redeem The Argyll Arms.
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.
There’s a shortage of actual pubs on Regent Street, so hit up Gem Bar for cocktails and beer pong. Just don't lose.
The Warwick is huge and nearly always open until 3am - perf if you're still crawling into the early hours.
The Comedy Pub
Just as the name suggests, The Comedy Pub hosts live stand-up comedy nights every Friday and Saturday.
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.
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.
The Sherlock Holmes
This spot is packed with Sherlock Holmes memorabilia (as you might have deduced).
Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese
A former brothel, monastery and Charles Dickens’ local (whew!), this is defo one of London’s most historic pubs.
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 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…
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!
