Jack Straw's Castle


Jack Straw's Castle

This historical coaching Inn is the highest pub in London.

Location: North End Way , London, NW3 7ES

Description: Fabulous views across the heath from this old Hampstead coaching Inn which is believed to be the highest pub in London.

Now it's a grade II listed building dating from 1721, and it's moniker deriving from Jack Straw, a comrade of Wat Tyler, leader of the 1381 peasants revolt against King Richard II.

'Jack Straw' addressed groups of peasants on Hampstead Heath from a hay wagon, which was known as Jack Straw's Castle. It is speculated however that Jack Straw may have been an alias for Wat Tyler.
