The Speights pub is still coming

London arrival and location announced

 The lads are on the final leg of their epic journey from New Zealand to London and today Speight’s confirmed that they will arrive in London at 5pm on Monday 8 October (UK time).

 A big celebration will be held to welcome the crew to London on the evening of 8 October. The celebration will mark the end of their 70 day journey via Samoa, Panama, the Bahamas and New York. The last leg across the Atlantic is forecast to have extremely rough weather so the lads will be keen to share a Speight’s on dry land with the grateful expats they’ve made the journey for.

An Official opening will be held on Thursday 11 October then from the 13 to 19 October tickets for UK Speight's Mates evenings in the Alehouse will be available by ballot.
