Random London Fact Of The Week
There are several pubs in the West End that go by the name ‘The Blue Posts’. These pubs are supposedly named after actual blue posts that once marked the boundaries of the old hunting ground that gave its name to Soho (‘soho!’ being an old hunting call).
If you fancy a pub crawl to check out these establishments for yourself, the pubs can be found on Newman Street, Berwick Street, Rupert Street, Kingly Street and Bennett Street (just off St. James’s Street).
