Great Pubs of London

Five years ago I bought a coffee-table book, “Great Pubs of London” by George Dailey. It has wonderful pictures and the history of twenty historic London pubs. I set myself a not very serious project to visit them all, but I got nowhere. I’ve just been to one of them – The George, in Borough High Street – and it’s prompted me to resurrect the project. In the absence of a map in the book (apparently corrected in a later edition), here is an interactive one I’ve constructed in Google Maps.

On the BBC website there’s a great article about George Dailey’s book with some terrific pictures.

And here is a list of the pubs and a map of their general location

Great Pubs of London by George Dailey

greatpubsI’ve just bought the book Great Pubs of London, by George Dailey. It has descriptions  and glorious photographs of 22 of London’s oldest pubs. I’ve been to a couple of them over the years but my goal is to visit all of them during 2017 for a pint, a pie and a picture!

But first I will need my new low-light, pocket camera (Sony Cyber-shot RX100 under consideration) so I can take photos in the dark bars of these old pubs.
