Best pubs in London

We’re building a new website of the best pubs in London (mostly as voted for by Londonist readers). We still have a few areas to explore, but do take a look through the guide so far, and let us know about any scandalous omissions. This week’s additions include: Catford Constitutional Club, Station Hotel, Lord Northbrook and Dacre Arms in Lewisham; and the Draft House and Northcote in Battersea.

Things to do

Or go under the sea in London …


Fancy an evening with a difference? This Friday 6 June YPlan are hosting an exclusive, after-dark event at SEA LIFE London Aquarium. Once the main crowds have left, you can chill out with the turtles and sharks and enjoy a free glass of prosecco as you meander through magical glass walkways to meet the residents within. There'll also be cocktails, gourmet food and the chance to capture your best piranha smile in the photo booth for a memento of the night.

This week’s Best of Londonist is sponsored by YPlan — Tonight's Going Out App. Tickets to the event cost £27 and are available only via YPlan, see here for more details.
