A direct descendant of ancient Roman taverns, the public house or simply the pub has very quickly become a part of national British culture. After all, the pub is first and foremost a meeting place where social classes are erased and you can not just have a pint of ale, but also learn all the latest news and gossip of the neighbourhood or village. The pub is an unmistakable part of British culture.
Most people have a favourite pub and the older it is the more popular it is with the locals so it is possible to walk into one pub half-empty and still beehive-like around the corner.
We take a walk through the oldest pubs in the City of London with our guide Irina Belousova.

Old pubs in the City of London

There are interesting pubs in every part of London - if you're in Hampstead, make sure you visit the atmospheric 1700's The Spaniards Inn. But the greatest concentration of interesting historic pubs within walking distance is nowadays in the City business district: here almost every pub is like a living history. The British often visit more than one in an evening, so let's take a look at some of the City's oldest pubs.
