Welcome to The Pipe Club of London website!
“Date of AGM/April meeting changed to Saturday 22nd April to avoid clashing with Easter weekend.”
The Pipe Club of London was formed in 1970 in association with the late Pipe Club of Great Britain with a view to encourage the appreciation of quality pipes and fine tobaccos, and, to promote the interests of members by offering them social entertainment and educational facilities connected with pipes and tobacco.
The Club is truly international in scope, having approximately 300 members in 26 countries and visitors to this website from 145 nations around the world.
Meetings are held at J.J.Fox’s on the second Tuesday of every month and at The Swan on the third Saturday each month unless another meeting is arranged for those dates. Please refer to the Club Calendar page for specific venues, dates and times.
All pipe smokers whether novice or expert, men or ladies are welcome to attend. Activities include tobacco tasting, talks on pipes and tobaccos, pipe-smoking competitions, visits to pipe factories and the camaraderie of like-minded pipe smokers.
