Captain Kidd Public House

Captain Kidd Public House

Home to a drink and a famous Pirate

Location: Off Wapping Rose Garden

Description: The second of the historic riverside pubs commemorates the famous pirate, Captain Kidd.

He in fact was a wealthy man, having married an heiress and so did not need to resort to piracy. He was finally caught and executed in 1701.

Go into the pub where a board on the right of the entrance passage records his story. There is also a gibbet in the pub riverside garden
