Organisers of a popular walking tour and pub crawl are to make two stops at venues in Harrow.
The tour, which will visit six pubs in total, will make visits to The Queen’s Head in Pinner and The White Horse in Harrow on the Hill.
“Middlesex does not exist anymore as a county, but it still exists in our letters, in the mindset and emotionally, of Londoners.”, say organisers. And whilst Middlesex is nearly as old as The City of London and was made up of 32 London districts, which are now part of various London boroughs.
The walk is to combine energies: to recognise the scope of old Middlesex, to support pubs, to deal with the need to exercise and for people of the various districts we cover to meet and make friends. We are now facing a Costs of Living crisis and it is hoped that these walks will encourage a sense of community spirit. There are to be four walks a year – one per season, with the first in October.
Speaking about the stop in Harrow, Organiser Gail Spencer told Harrow Online: “The White Horse in Harrow on the Hill – This bar is very special….has a lovely staff and is managed well by a great General Manager, Frederic. They have a French Night each Thursday and this needs more awareness and the word spreading. It is a big part of what has made London – London.”
They will always take place on a Monday and cover the districts of Pinner, Harrow on the Hill, Ealing, Twickenham, Teddington and Hampton Wick. The itinerary for the First Walking Tour and Pub Crawl is as follows:
