As a tourist who enjoys pubs, I was hoping to spend a bit of time in the London sunshine enjoying a pint during my week in London. I was thrilled when I found a historic pub crawl in a guide book and a couple of the recommendations were placed I already had bookmarked. I decided to go for it!

This Bow Lane pub attracts a large after-work crowd. The drinks and food a are on point, if not especially remarkable, and service is prompt and polite. If you're looking a drink in the city and a great atmosphere on a weekday, you could do a lot worse.more

Another great pub in the St. Paul's/Bank area. My friends and I slipped in today for a quick pint and to warm up after yet another brutally cold January day.
