The Spaniards Inn

The Spaniards Inn is one of the world's most famous pubs. Its history dates back to 1585. The pub is located by Hampstead Heath and has a long literary tradition, with the Romantic poet John Keats (whose home, Keats House, is nearby) having written some of his key works here, and the pub being referenced both in Bram Stoker's Dracula and Charles Dickens' The Pickwick Papers.

The Prospect Of Whitby [shown here in 1940] at №57 Wapping Wall E1, is London's oldest riverside pub, dating back to 1520. Most areas of the pub have spectacular views over the Thames, including the beer garden, first-floor balcony, and terrace. The pub was originally frequented by those involved in life on the river and sea; it was a notorious haunt for smugglers, thieves, and pirates.
