Former Leeds student designs the ultimate pub map

If you thought an Otley Run was difficult, try 563 bars and restaurants.


A former Leeds University graphic design student has come up with the ultimate pub crawl.

Steve Lovell, 39, has spent nearly a year drawing up ‘Leeds Orderaround’, based on the classic London tube map but applied to 563 Leeds bars and restaurants.

Route beer – Steve with his map

Steve clocked up miles walking around all parts of the city and used virtual mapping techniques to make sure he wasn’t making a map of drinking establishments that have closed down.

With the average price of a pint of lager in Leeds being approximately £2.40, having a quick one at every stop on Steve’s map would see you splash out around £1,350 – so it’s a bar crawl best spread out over several months, or maybe years.

Mr. Lovell said:  “It’s been deceptively long and hard work, but I’m very happy with the finished result. I’ve had lots of kind comments about it already and it does make me feel quite proud.”
