How One Man Created The Biggest Virtual Pub Quiz In The World (Esquire)

The idea came the day after Britain shut its pubs down. Flynn had left his pub behind three weeks earlier, but still wanted to provide something for the dedicated teams who turned up every Thursday night to The Crown. He created an event on Facebook for a digital pub quiz he planned to hold on a Saturday, and went about his weekend.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

REVEALED: Britain’s pub capitals – Who takes the Top spot?

We’re a nation of pub lovers, and due to being in lockdown, we haven’t been able to go out and do what Brits love best – go to the pub for a warming Sunday lunch, a quick after-work drink (or three), or a boozy night out with friends.

Liberty Games has analysed the addresses of over 51,679 British pubs and geographical data for over 350 boroughs, to see which part of Britain have the ‘highest pub density’. You can view our findings in full here.

Pubs have been a part of British life for around 2,000 years, brought to our shores by invading Romans, so it’s no surprise that our love of pubs runs deep. But which city across the UK has been crowned as Britain’s Pub Capital?

Taking the top spot is Liverpool with a total of 477 pubs scattered across the city, which equates to a whopping 11 pubs per square mile! Liverpool is the UK’s hotspot for pub crawls and the perfect destination for your post-lockdown pub crawl.

Following closely behind is Brighton and Hove with 340 pubs in total, and 11 pubs per square mile, making this city a real competitor for Liverpool in the quest for Britain’s Pub Capital.

Third place goes to Portsmouth with 163 pubs in total and 10 per square mile, followed closely by Norwich with 155 in total and 10 per square mile.

How do other cities around the UK compare? Take a look at the table below that reveals the top 10 cities for a post lockdown pub crawl:
