Welcome to The Pipe Club of London website!


The Pipe Club of London

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 over 400 members in 25+ countries and visitors to this website from 145 nations around the world.

Meetings are held at ‘The Overdraught’ on the third Saturday each month unless another meeting is arranged for those dates. We also meet virtually once a month. Please refer to the Club Calendar page for specific venues, dates and times.

All pipe smokers whether novice or expert 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.
