The Lyttelton Arms in Camden - Our Story

Eclectic and discerning music venue for those that know

Perched on the corner of Mornington Crescent and Camden High Street, The Lyttleton Arms has a colourful history, having been embroiled in the ‘racetrack wars’ of the 1920s, as featured in the TV series ‘Peaky Blinders’, when Camden and Birmingham gangs joined forces to control racecourse gambling.  At the time the pub was known as the Southampton Arms, and was witness to violent clashes between the Clerkenwell Sabini Brothers, and Camden’s George Sage.  Following the clean-up of horse racing after the Second World War, the Lyttleton Arms received its current name in tribute to jazz musician and radio presenter, Humphrey Lyttleton, and since then has enjoyed a more peaceful role as one of the neighbourhood’s best-loved watering holes.
