A Pint at London’s Oldest Pub

At the end of my journey, I decided to celebrate with a pint at one of London’s oldest and most popular pubs, Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese. It was rebuilt in 1667 after the Great Fire and has had some pretty famous regulars, including Charles Dickens and Dr. Samuel Johnson, the creator of the first English dictionary. The pub is definitely a beacon for creative types, and I can see why it came highly recommended by Tatiana, Four Seasons Hotel Park Lane Concierge.

The pub is located in a narrow alley off Fleet Street, and three centuries of footsteps have worn a crescent shape into the threshold, which is now safely covered by a metal grate.

Inside, the dark, cavernous pub is warmed by a fireplace and the hearty smiles of locals ready to share a pint and a story. I made my way to an empty spot at the bar and ordered a pint of cider. It was the perfect ending to an incredible adventure.

    That’s a great pub – there’s another you should visit next time but make sure you have good directions as it’s really hard to find. It’s called Ye Olde Mitre and is almost as old as this place. Featured in ‘Snatch’ it’s really atmospheric and worth hunting down
