Both day and night, pubs in London set the stage for the city’s infamous drinking culture and have been part of Londoners lives since the 1400s. Located on nearly every block, pubs are an integral part of London life and are renowned for their selection of traditional ales and lagers, English comfort food like bangers & mash and fish & chips, and casual environments.
There are more than 5,000 pubs in and around London, and they range in size and vibe from friendly neighborhood meeting places to bigger and rowdier commercial establishments. Londoners commonly gather at pubs for a quick lunch during the day or after work, to support their favorite football team, to grab a pint before going to the theater, or as a starting point for a night on the town. On warm days, mobs of patrons often take their pints outside to enjoy the sun and a bit of socializing until closing time (usually at 11pm).
The pub culture dates back hundreds of years here, where they were once referred to as public houses, and today, the culture and traditions live on, so anyone looking for great London pubs can find the right one for them no matter where they are in the city or whom they happen to be with.
