Event description

Description

Before I start with the blurb, let's clarify things...

Would you like a full pint or a just a half?

Because this tour is available in either of two 90-minute sections or full-length (4hrs)

This listing is for Part 1, the first/top section of the walk and can also be used to book the full route – see more info further down.

.......................................

Overview

First of all, it should be clarified that this is not a pub crawl, although refreshments stops are factored in along the way.

This is a guided walk about the varied history of Holloway Road – a fascinating centuries-old thoroughfare on which we will discuss approx thirty drinking establishments along the full route. Along the way you'll hear about breweries old and new, famous delicacies, live music, dead bodies, courts, politics, sports, various forms of transport, a tank and some nonsense.

You'll see some original Victorian social networking sites and you'll learn about about long-gone establishments. You might even discover some new venues.

Please note that the description above is for the full route – some of the topics listed will not be on the first section of the walk

.......................................

So, what'll it be? A single or a double?

A 90-minute half or a full 4hr tour?

Part 1: Archway–HollowayOdeon – includes one refreshment stop (this listing).

Part 2: Holloway–HighburyCorner includes one refreshment stop (click here for booking and info).

Full Tour: Archway–HighburyCorner reduced price – includes three refreshment stops (this listing).

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

We will be going into pubs – sorry, no-one under 18 please – youthful types should bring ID, just in case! However, babies and small children under six are welcome at no extra charge as long as parents feel they can be managed without deteriment to the group. I hope you understand.

Where exactly does this tour start?

Details of the meeting point will be on your ticket.
For those booking the second half only, the meeting point location will be emailed to you separately.


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Please don't waste time and resources printing out your ticket.
I will have a list of attendees on the day, although it would be wise to make a note of your booking reference

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

In cases of illness or unforseen circumstances involving no-shows I will be happy to transfer your booking to another walk on another date. However, you might be able to offer your ticket to a friend ... please see the next question...

Is it OK if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

This is fine – just email me and let me know the name of the person who will be taking your place.

Is this tour suitable for wheelchairs?

The walk will be mostly on standard shopping pavements and as such should not pose any problems further to those experienced on an average high street.
