Wherever you are starting from, get onto the Northern Line of the underground, and travel to Archway. Walk across to the Archway Tavern (22). Sadly it is not a proper pub any more, so no longer suitable for a quick drink to get your tour started
Take a number 134 bus to Muswell Hill Broadway (8).On a clear fresh morning, Peter recommends the attractive ride up Muswell Hill Road.
Ray Davies mentions in “X-Ray” riding the 134 down to Leicester Square, although nowadays the route only runs as far as Tottenham Court Road.
