The London Correspondent Travels

Some London pubs from my London Correspondent

How about some pubs to make life interesting? What would London be like without a few lovely pubs? The locals love them, certainly, and during the fine weather the young people stand around in large bunches outside the pubs after work and before they go home. They are very noisy places, but there is a great buzz about them, and many have lovely hanging baskets and flowers along their fronts, so they are very colourful as well.

  • The Hung, Drawn and Quartered. I cannot tell you about the interior of this but I could not resist the name. I hope you can read the inscription by Samuel Pepys on the board.
