Historic Pubs walk in St Paul’s area, London

Travel: St Paul’s Underground station

As in previous years, Roger Bone will be leading us around an interesting area of London and taking us into some of the most historic pubs in the area. This year’s tour starts at St Paul’s and goes on to Bow Lane and Monument. We will end with a meal (optional) at Rajasthan, close to Monument tube. Please note this is different from the 2015 walk.

We will meet in the ticket hall area of St Paul’s tube station at 6pm for a walk The Historic Pubs Around St Paul’s Cathedral.

The walk will take in Temple Bar, St Paul’s churchyard and Queen Anne’s statue, Carter Lane and the Rising Sun Inn, Watling Street and Williamson’s Tavern, Bow Church and King Street leading to the Guildhall and St Lawrence Church. The walk will end with a meal at the Lord Raglan Inn at 8 30pm. The Lord Raglan is very close to St Paul’s tube station and has a wide menu of inexpensive dishes. The walk is roughly a circular one ending almost where we begin.
