London's Longest Pub?
Old, traditional and reputed to be the longest pub in London.
Location: 25 London Street, W2 1HH
Description: And I quote...'a long pub this one!'.
'The Dickens Tavern', as the name implies, is an old boozer, traditional, and reputed to be the longest pub in London.
With traditional features and decoration, as an ale and wine pub, it's popular with locals, tourists, whoever is thirsty. Due to the fact that it's very long, it's also a tad narrow, so on crowded days...
Guard your spot.
