活動內容

Meet Nick in historic Fitzrovia, then take in around a dozen or so pubs and clubs of our tour. It takes about two and a half to three hours and we end up about a mile away, in Soho, next to The Palace Theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue, for an (optional) sing-song around a piano! (Thursdays and Saturdays)

We look at places frequented by many of the great 19th and 20th century poets and writers, including Dickens, Brendan Behan, Dylan Thomas, Anthony Burgess, George Orwell and Virginia Woolf et al, and a few earlier writers such as Samuel Johnson and William Blake. We see where Dylan Thomas met his wife and look at other incidents that inspired some great works. We later include places visited and used by some more modern artists and writers; Paul McCartney: Damien Hurst and Julian Fellows, etc. There are readings along the way. As a current writer, Nick will give you a unique insight into an area of London that changed the world creatively. 

We don't go into all the pubs because they are busy and we'd get very twisted drinking in all of them (!) but there is plenty of opportunity for breaks.

Nick is an award-winning writer and director who likes the odd pint too! He has an MA in Creative Producing and was nominated for Millennium Creative Briton. He's written numerous plays, including adaptations of Shakespeare classics, and Dicken's A Christmas Carol; a screenplay and other assorted bits. He also wrote the London Literary Pub Crawl tour! He is a writer who can identify with struggling writers of the past! He has hosted a number of literary events in London and feels like he is best friends with Charles Dickens, George Orwell, Dylan Thomas, Virginia​ Woolf and others

體驗地點

The pub where George Orwell really used to drink and the model for the Proles Pub in his book 1984. It used to be a family-run pub (Nick's regular New Year's Eve venue!) and is now the ONLY pub owned by an East End brewery.

The new writing theatre bar open till late to those who know about it! Nick had a show on here!

The pub used by a French president and Brendan Behan. They sometimes serve us champagne by the glass! It's Nick's local!

It was a great tour and we learned a lot and saw some amazing old pubs that we would never have known about. Nick is very entertaining and inclusive, he made sure that everyone felt involved. If a venue was too crowded or too noisy he seemed able to quickly find a more private room or space. The 3 hours went very quickly and it was a surprise to realise how close we were to our starting point. The one criticism we would make is that there was no mention of the women, writers, muses and contributors who were present through these times, any mention was inevitably in some minor or small poignant .

What an amazing tour! Nick was an impressive host who made us laugh, encouraged a really comfortable environment, and imparted a wealth of knowledge. We spent two weeks in London doing so many incredibly fun things, and I can easily say this was one of the best nights we had.
