The London Literary Pub Crawl, with Charles Dickens (Deceased!)
Support new london writers and Visit the Public Houses and Taverns that inspired previous generations of writers and artists. And meet Dylan Thomas,Charles Dickens, Virginia Woolf, George Orwell, Anthony Burgess, T.S Eliot and others.
See where the giants of the literary world ate, drank, discussed, thought and worked. The pubs and taverns that inspired some of the greatest creative minds in the world - and still do.
This new and unique tour is artist-led and arranged by the not-for-profit charity The Maverick Theatre Company. It involves local writers and artists from London's West End and the UK TV and Film industry. There's a lovely synergy, that by coming on our tour, you are supporting a current generation of (usually!) struggling writers and artists in London!
We are delighted to announce that the late Charles Dickens (and occasionally the late Virginia Woolf) have agreed to host the tour! It takes in not only the history of literature in London but some of its contemporary places and spaces too and looks at some key elements in our writers' lives.
Starting in Fitzrovia, and ending in Soho, our tour also includes those pubs and bars associated with the British Film industry and contemporary writers. So you never know who you might bump into...!

the charles dickens christmas carol walk
To celebrate Nick's new adaptation of Dickens' classic, we are holding a special tour and reading of the text on Sat 2nd December. The tour will take in Dickens' main residence in Fitzrovia and is suitable for all ages.
Writer Nick - usually in his garden! - has made some short films for first time visitors to London. See Here.
If you have a party of eight people or more we can design your very own 'branded' Literary Pub tour, with discounted tickets, any time of any day. Great for work parties and corporate functions, Book Clubs and stylish Hen and stag celebrations. How about a Literary Office Outing Crawl? Contact us for details.
Those under 18 years of age are not allowed to buy or consume alcohol in the UK. But we're much more about the literature than the booze! So we do a 'student special' - touring the family friendly pubs and including theatres and other places of literary interest. There's a special rate for student groups here. (Min party of 10)
And please feel free to contact us for further details or if you are unsure about anything. We're here to share the Literary Love!
We're looking for new writers! Fancy writing a new comedy or drama? See AirPlayScript.com
