Did Cromwell cross the road



Did Cromwell cross the road

Since 1871, this pub was built opposite Cromwell's house.

Location: 33 Whitehall, SW1A 2BX

Description: The area around this pub has altered many times over the years but old maps do throw up items of interest.

An ordnance survey map of 1871 indicates a public house on this site - the present day 'Silver Cross' - the same map indicates the 'site of Oliver Cromwell's house' on the other side of the road...maybe a bit late for him to have popped in!

Indeed, if you still want to witness a little of what once was, the Silver Cross has managed to preserve aspects of times gone by within.

The pub was licensed as a brothel by Charles I.
