Seahawks things to do before the game
The Seahawks arrive in London at Heathrow Airport early Thursday afternoon. From that point on, there’s a whole slate of fan activities planned for 12s through the weekend.
Seahawks home bar in London: Barrowboy & Banker Pub
Pub hours: Thursday 10 a.m. to midnight; Friday 10 a.m. to 1 a.m.; Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 a.m.; Sunday 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
The designated Seahawks bar is — per the Seahawks’ website — “a stone’s throw from the London Bridge.” Blitz will make some appearances, there’ll be games and trivia nights, and you can get a free Seahawks rally towel too.
The pub menu includes traditional English fare like fish and chips, savory pies, bangers and mash, black pudding Scotch eggs, and an assortment of pudding desserts. Oh and there’s beer too, of course.
