Infamous Fitzrovia: from dog fighting to train robbers

Pirate ship pub sign.Guided walk: 6.30pm to 7.30pm Tuesday 25 June 2013. Entry: £10, payable at the event.

Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Association, 39 Tottenham Street, London W1T 4RX.

A sobering guided walk to admire some of Fitzrovia’s 40 or so public houses, many of which are architecturally striking. But what went on amongst the spit and the sawdust offers a different treat for the voyeurs of Fitzrovia life. 

Partly-reformed boozer, historian of Fitzrovian deviancy and co-author of A Pub Crawl Through History, Mike Pentelow will reveal the depths of depravity that went on inside Fitzrovia’s pubs before the hipsters spoilt it all. If you are looking for Sodom and Gomorrah, you’ll find it here.

A 60-minute walk: £10. Cash on the night. Maximum of 30 people. No children. Women at their own risk. Proceeds to charity. We aim to get around in 60 minutes, but could over-run by up to 30 minutes if there is a large number of people.

This event is part of the Fitzrovia Festival 2013.
