Overview

The London Pub is a stunning celebration of the capital's pubs. Area by area, the reader embarks on a fascinating journey to the most remarkable drinking places in London. The selection is diverse -- from oak-beamed, 16th-century taverns, which were often favoured meeting places for smugglers and villains, to the elaborate gain palaces of the Victorian age -- and explores London's rich cultural history from a new and dynamic perspective. Specially commissioned photographs reveal the timeless character of the London pub, while the absorbing text uncovers the history of each pub's architectural evolution, their changing role through the centuries and their famous -- and occasionally infamous -- patrons. Practical information on pubs' locations, opening hours and food and drink selections is also included. The London Pub is the perfect souvenir for tourists, London barflies and beer aficionados, and presents a unique view of London's history, tradition and culture.
