Posted June 15, 2017

What could be better than a pint after a long day of exploring our amazing London? Here are some of my favourite spots for a drink in and around London’s most popular tourist destinations!

I’ll start the list with my favourite one, Waxy O’Connor’s. The pub is situated in Soho, so it’s a good option after a day walking around Oxford Street, or just some drinks after a show in Leicester Square.  What’s not to love about a pub with a massive tree right in the middle of all the tables?  They say that the tree was planted 250 years ago in the Midlands of Ireland and after it died, a local woodworker decided to ship pieces to England and they were ‘replanted’ in the middle of the pub. They have a great range of draft beers and you can choose one of the many different rooms to sit in and have your pint. They even have live Irish music every day after 8!

Nearest underground station: Tottenham Court Road

The second one of my list is close to Camden Town. Camden itself hosts a number of great pubs, but this one is special. If you are tired of the big crowd and looking for a unique and less touristy option, this is the one for you.  It’s called the Euston Tap and as the name suggests, it is in Euston, and is consistently rated one of the best bars in the world!  The pub was built in the place of the Euston Arch, and maintains a structure which honours the arch.

Nearest underground station: Euston
Address: 190 Euston Rd, London NW1 2EF

My last tip is located in Greenwich, close to the O2 Arena. One of the most amazing things about The Pilot is the interior decor, which resembles that of a boat.  The pub is also part of the Fuller’s Griffin Brewery, which is home to a family of beers recognised as among the best in the world. It’s also considered one of the best places to eat in Greenwich. It is without a doubt one of the best pubs I have been to in London!

Nearest underground station: North Greenwich
