A trip to London simply must include a trip to the glowering presence of the Tower of London and the iconic dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral. But sometimes small is beautiful, so we think you should also take time to join the locals at play – and what better way than in a drop-dead gorgeous pub?
1. Cittie of Yorke pub
To understand London you must understand the lure of the pub and this is one of London's finest. First established in 1430 the Cittie has three bars but the best is the cavernous vaulted space at the rear dominated by a series of enormous wine vats. Grab a spot in the intimate wooden 'snugs’. Cheers!
