Good pubs

by Toshioohsako

Do you know any good "self-experienced"pubs near Charing Cross Tube Station? If you do, I appreciate your telling me briefly why they are good

Re: Good pubs

A relatively inexpensive one with real ale, no muzak, adequate food, and outside seating is "The Moon Under Water" on Leicester Square, right in front of the half price theatre ticket booth. 5 mins walk from ChX. Or there's another branch of the same Wetherspoon chain, a converted bank, at the top of Whitehall, before Horse Guards Parade.

The Chandos , Trafalgar Square, or Gordon's Wine Bar for historical interest- right next to Charing Cross Station. Google them for details.

This site's great for finding pubs in London or elsewhere:

Re: Good pubs

by Dulwich_Dog

Just thought of a few other interesting pubs close by :

The Sherlock Holmes - a bit touristy, very close to Charing Cross station.

The Freemason's Arms in Longacre, Covent Garden

The Lamb and Flag, Covent Garden - not my favourite, but interesting for historical reasons - used to be be called the "Bucket of Blood" because they hosted bare fist fights. The poet John Dryden is reputed to have been a regular.

Re: Good pubs

I am not quite sure what you mean by "self-experienced"pubs but there are some really good pubs within about ten minutes walk. If you walk along the Strand away from the Station, there is a pub on the right called the Coal Hole, very old and atmoshpheric. Before you come to that on the other side of the road, in a tiny little alley called Bull Inn Court (beside the Adelphi theatre) is the Nell Gwynne, a lovely tiny old-fashioned place with possibly the smallest gents toilets in London!

The Princess of Wales in Villiers Street (the street down the side of Charing X station going towards Embankment Tube) is OK but a bit touristy and can get crowded in the evenng.

The Lemon Tree in Bedfordbury is OK but quite modern looking inside now.

If you walk right down Whitehall away from Charing Cross, the Red Lion on the left is a nice old-fashioned place.

Send me a VT mail when you are coming to London and, if I am back home then, I will take you and show you a few of them.

Hope this assists,

fergy.

Travel Tips for London

The Banqueting House

by alucas

The Banqueting House in Whitehall is the last remaining building of Whitehall Palace - the home of the sovereigns of England in the 16th and 17th centuries. It was designed for King James I by Inigo Jones, and was the first building in England to be built in the Palladian style. It is best remembered though as the building from where Charles I walked out through a window onto the scaffold to be executed in 1649.

The most remarkable thing about the building is the ceiling, commissioned by Charles I and painted by Peter Paul Rubens between 1630 and 1634. The panels are filled with allegorical figures and feature James I (Charles' father).

The Banqueting House is open to the public - but entry is free ONLY during Open House weekend.

Walk through old London, ride...

by margaux

Walk through old London, ride in a bus and see Piccadillysquare! Oké, its oldfashioned, but so typical London.
Sitting and eating in a pub, while watching a sportgame on one of those TV-sets that's always available is also a favorite.
When we were in London, there was christmas all around us and tha'ts very decorating. The shops full of presents and santa claus everywhere.

One of London's Liveliest Districts: Covent Garden

by deecat

How ironic that an original garden of a Convent is now associated with fun and frolic!

If Covent Garden sounds familiar, it should. It's the vegetable market where Eliza Doolittle sold flowers in the play/movie, "My Fair Lady".

The once bustling market moved out in 1974, and the Greater London Council took charge. They took the central block called Fowler's Market and converted it into an upper and lower alley of small shops. Today, it's an area of boutiques and idiosyncratic shops. There are many interesting places in Covent Garden with its cobbled streets (for pedestrians only).

First, there's the quaint shops. In addition, there's the Royal Opera House, theatres, bars, and cafes. We also saw plenty of street performers.
The main Piazza was designed by Inigo Jones who was influenced by Italy's Palladion architecture.

Market Hall, the once flower market, is now the London Transport Museum (which displays the city's 1st underground steam locomotive) and several shops. The stalls of the market are often run by designers themselves.

St. Paul's Church is also found in the Piazza. It's affectionally called "the actor's church". I found out that the entertainers who perform outside the church must undergo auditions before they are given a licence to perform!

South of Market Hall is Jubilee Hall with its clothing, crafts, leathers, and household goods. It is not as upscale though.

The Theatre Museum is nearby on Russell Street , and it traces the history of the stage over the last 400 years. My fondest memory is watching the street performers around St. Paul's Church lure the tourist with their antics. This is such a fun spot and so unlike the atmosphere around most churches.

Wimpole Street 1

by alucas

Keep your eyes peeled when walking around in London. I spotted this commemorative stone on a building in Wimpole Street the other day. I don’t know who Mary Lithgow was, but there have certainly been Lithgows connected with that area for a number of years.

The actual building is on the corner of Wimpole Street, and there is a photograph in my next tip.

Cross the road wherever and whenever you like

by easyoar

In Britain, the crime of Jaywalking does not exist. Indeed most Brits have no idea what jaywalking even means, which makes it a little difficult the first time we go to somewhere like the U.S.A. or Singapore where you can only cross a road at a designated crossing and at the designated time.

You may think that after reading my "have a nice day" custom tip, that I'm having a laugh here. No, this is completely true. The only roads pedestrians aren't allowed to cross are motorways in Britain. Otherwise (provided you take due care and attention - and I won't be held responsible for your lack of it) you can cross any road, anywhere and anytime. Some roads are so busy it is advisable you cross only at designated points or use the underpasses, but even at designated points, if the little man is red (don't pass), it is still OK to cross the road if you so desire (of course it helps if there are no vehicles coming first). If you still don't believe any of this, watch the locals when you get here, and you will see it is true.

Of course if you are heading back to the US or Singapore or anywhere else where jaywalking is illegal, don't forget to obey your local laws when you return. You may prefer to follow what you know so you don't get frustrated by the restrictions when you get back home (jaywalking is a serious frustration to me when I'm abroad...).
