A Monopoly Pub Crawl is a pub crawl involving visiting public houses on each of the streets of a city which appear on that city's version of the Monopoly Board. This is classically done in London following the British version of the game, but could just as easily be applied to anywhere else having a dedicated Monopoly Board.
The London version of the pub crawl follows the list of locations in the British version of the game of Monopoly. Different opinions exist as to whether, in order for the crawl to be valid, the locations must be visited in the same order as on the board and the stations should be included.
In addition, those undertaking the crawl must handle the issue that not all of the locations on the board are in fact streets, that some of them were once streets but not longer exist and that some of them do not have public houses within their bounds.
One set of venues that comes as close as possible to meeting the spirit of the locations in the original game within the center of modern London is as follows.
- Old Kent Road - The Lord Nelson, 338 Old Kent Road (not to be confused with New Kent Road which it adjoins)
- Whitechapel Road - The Blind Beggar, 337 Whitechapel Road
- Kings Cross Station - Coopers, within the station
- The Angel Islington - The Nags Head, 12 Upper Street, Islington (Islington is a district of London not a specific named street)
- Euston Road - O'Neills, 73-77 Euston Road
- Pentonville Road - The Finca, 96-98 Pentonville Road

- Whitehall - The Old Shades, 37 Whitehall
- Northumberland Avenue - The Sherlock Holmes, 10 Northumberland Street
- Marylebone Station - The Victoria and Albert
