Drink at the Angelsea Arms

Built in the 1820s and first occupied in 1829, the Anglesea Arms, in South Kensington was originally known as The Swan.

Though it was rather pricey when your author last popped in, it's a decent little pub in an area with a surprising dearth of pubs in general, probably owing to the high property prices in the area. It is also said to be the place where Bruce Reynolds planned the Great Train Robbery.

  1. ooohh I love it when you select Victorian (or older) pubs with great outdoor seating. They remind me of my best experiences while living in Britain.

  2. Really cool building!
    I've been there once:)
