Frequently Asked Questions.

Why Pubs and Taverns?

The British Public House has been the centre of community life for hundreds of years and although they have changed somewhat in class and nature they are still places that attract a variety of people. We've found some really special pubs that were frequented by artists and writers - and still are!

I Don't Want to Drink Alcohol.

That's absolutely fine. Although it's a pub crawl it's more about the artists that used the pubs and clubs than the booze itself.

I Want To Drink Lots.

That is also fine, although you probably won't have time for more than three or four drinks in the regular, main tour. But we start and, more importantly, end at a pub. And often the night goes on! It's up to the group! The route is fairly compact, so it's easy to nip back to a favourite pub if you are so moved!

How many pubs do we visit and what do we see?

We visit about a dozen pubs and top private members clubs, but we only spend time drinking at the start, end and a few along the way. You'll see where these great minds thought, debated and drank. And you may meet a few famous writers and characters from the past too...

I'm travelling alone. Is that okay?

Absolutely. Solo traveller, male or female - you'll be made very welcome. We really are enthusiasts and pleased to welcome and share our great city with you. And we can help you out with any other plans you might have. Just drop us a line.

How big are the groups? What about the weather?

We try and keep the groups small and intimate. Like the pubs we visit. And we continue whatever the weather! So dress appropriately and a brolly may be a good idea.

Are children allowed?

Not very young children and it is illegal in the UK to serve alcohol to under 18's. But 'well behaved' older children are welcome!

Who runs the tour? Do you use Blue Badge Guides?

It's run by the award-winning, not-for-profit registered charity, The Maverick Theatre Company and presented by writers and occasionally actors too! We're enthusiasts. Some of the actors are also the rather excellent Blue Badge Guides, but they're actors and writers first.

How about access for the disabled?

We really want our show to be accessible to all.  However, there are busy streets and we start our show in an upstairs room of an old tavern without wheelchair access unfortunately.  But we can also present the first part of our show outside and after that the route is fairly flat. Please email us if you have any concerns or queries.

How do I book tickets? Can I bring a party?

You certainly can bring a party. For eight or more people we'll lay on a special, tailor-made, 'Any time - Any Day' crawl.  Book tickets securely online, at this website.
