Mysterious London: Pubs

London Pubs

London is filled with fabulous pubs. Kerry Hammond recently scoured the city to find her favorites. She's sharing them here with us just as she has with London sites associated with Jack the RipperAgatha Christie and a fabulous pop up bar called the Midnight Apothecary

One of the highlights of my recent trip to London was visiting all of the Pubs, or Public Houses. We found pubs that were built as long ago as the 1600s and stopped in for a meal or a quick pint whenever we could. I enjoyed admiring the d├ęcor inside each one, and they all had their own unique charm.

I was surprised to find out that there are a couple of companies that own a large amount of the pubs in the city, so we came across the exact same menu in several of the ones we visited.
