|It is the Paddington Pikey Pub Crawl.
When we did it last thursday with over 20 workmates we started in the Pride of Paddington, then onto the sawyers arms, along to the Sussex Arms where no women ever drink and reef is £1.35 a bottle, down to the depths of the Cads Bar where £1.60 will get you a pint, along to the Alexander Fleming where the only 2 shots they have tequila and zambucca, next to the Monkey Puzzle which in truth was too respectable for this crawl, down the road to the Heron which is at the bottom of a council estate, then up the road to the final trio all a stones throw from each other. The Rob Roy, The Royal Exchange and then The Great Western. By this stage we were steaming and the Exchange & Great Western were not keen on getting our business, so we decided to head back to the pub of the night, The Heron, to dance the final 20 minutes away, unknown to us that the pub was closed for a private party for a group of germans. It didn't stop us first time and it didn't stop us second time. Great night and a seriously challenging crawl. 16 drinks in total (ncluding shots, tart juices, spirits and beer), i would love someone else to replicate it and let me know how they get on.|

|St Albans (the younger alternative route!) Start off at the town hall. Walk right along Victoria street to Casa, then straight into O'Neills next door. Wander back onto the main street and to the left to the Bell, shortly followed by the Cross Key. After leaving there head to the Vintry (located further down and right at the main traffic light junction). Continue to the Fleur found along but the other side of the road to the vintry and next to the clock tower. End up at batchwood nightclub by catching the batchwood bus from the main street by the bus stops.|

Right start the night off in Brookes bar, excellent to get it started quickly, 10 shots for £8, funky music and a decent high quality bar.
Move down the town to Bellini's. Excellent music, good vibe, funky house music and good quality clubbers.Gets you in the mood to move towards.......
Liquid....Not fantastic i know but its the better nightclub out of the lot! If you get there early enough then you get in for free with a flyer or at a discount price, and some free drinks with it!! they also do buy one get 2 free if you go on time!
Depending on the scene in Liquid move towards Charlie Browns if you want a late one. Good funky dancy music. Why not?!
Then to Sammys for a kebab and a brandy and coke!|

|The ultimate GEORGE BEST pub crawl,guaranteed to get you rip roaring drunk,or at least merry!
Your likely to bump into BEST at some of these pubs as he regularly frequents them and puts his liver through its paces.
Get a cab to Margaretta Terrace,Chelsea,SW3 visit the "Phene Arms",drink a glass of wine quickly.Walk round the corner to the Kings Road and pop into "Henry J Beans",then drink a couple of pints of premium lager at the bar.
Cross the road to "the trafalger", once inside hit the top shelf,start with vodka and move onto brandy,also keep sipping away at that white wine.By now you should be well on the way.Now stagger up the Kings road until you reach the "Chelsea Potter" once inside this fine pub you must continue with the spirits.
You will now be drunk and may even have George Bests autograph as well,trust me ive done it and Chelsea is a great place for a pub crawl.........
Get a cab to |

|You should try the CIRCLE LINE pub crawl. Go to a pub at every stop on the circle line. Apparently great fun, but can't remember the end - even though my great friends got me round! It's a huge challenge.|

|Over the course of a weekend, try having half a pint in every pub within the city walls in York. Everything in York City Centre is within easy walking distance, which means there are no travel difficulties, but it doesn't give much recovery time between one pub and the next. Me and 3 workmates managed this in 1996, when there were 56 pubs. Many have since changed, some closed, and some new bars opened, so I would guess there might be a few more than 56 now. |

|The Delph Run, Brierley Hill, Dudley, West Midlands

|The balham pub crawl. Start at the lounge bar on bedford hill, and work your way round tot he bedford (and there are two bars, so one at each).
Then its on to sainsbury's car park (the exhibit), under the bridge for one at the firefly, then back under the bridge to the balham tup.
Moving swiftly on to the blthe spirit (or whatever that pub next to macdonalds is called that particular week). Ignore the Moon under water. You know why if you live in balham.
Feel free to now stop off for something at macdonalds, and then its round the corner to the two new bars there at the bottom of bedford hill.
Then you have a clear run up balham high road to what used to be bar interlude, the puzzle and then the duke of devonshire. Be careful not to go into foxtons on the way, because it looks like a trendy bar.
Finally you can end with a pint and a game of pool in the George, before falling out of there and getting a chicken cottage from across the road near clapham south tube station.
If you've still not had enough, there is always oblivion, then another firefly, and the windmill on clapham common.
From then on there is a whole world more pubs in clapham...|

|Random tube stop pub crawl. Cons: involves some preparation, a lot of sitting around in tunnels, and the possibility of ending up in Dagenham. Pros: the thrill of the unknown, can be undertaken any number of times, the liberating rush of abdicating responsibility and throwing yourself into the arms of fate. Spend the previous evening writing the name of every tube station in London on to scraps of paper, discounting any outside zone 6. Meet at elevenish, draw a station out of the bag, and off you go. One pint per stop. We've done it three or four times and the number of pubs visited varies greatly. If the next stop is miles away you can always get a can for the journey. |

|The Kingston Pub Crawl. Around 18 pubs (i think). Requires an 11 o'clock kick off. Best saved for the summer time so you can drink by the river thames in the sun. It's tough, but hey, somebody's got to do it!|
