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. One new pub has been added this week: the Old Brewery in Greenwich.

Things to do

Try something different this summer…

Fancy learning Icelandic? How about ballet, biscuit decorating, or battlefield guiding? Or are you more of a creative writer? Balcony gardener? Beer taster? Whoever you are and whatever you want to be, City Lit has a course for you this summer.

With over 1,000 courses this July and August, take your time to look through the incredible range on offer and give yourself the opportunity to try something new. Many courses are one day only, so swap that day in front of the telly for a day learning about how to write a novel/what city life was like in the ancient world/London history walks around Bloomsbury, Borough, Bermondsey and beyond. Seriously, we’ve only scratched the surface, take a look for yourself.

This week’s Best of Londonist is sponsored by City Lit.
