London by Pub - Ted Bruning
London by Pub combines pubs of London with interesting and historical walks around London.

Written by Ted Bruning, a former editor of CAMRA’s newspaper, What’s Brewing, London by Pub contains 15 historical walks around the capital. The aim of the book is to take readers on a tour of classic pubs whilst also visiting historical sights.

The book covers the main tourist areas of London plus some further afield and each chapter is designed to be a walk ranging from a mile to 4 miles. Areas featured include the the City, Belgravia, Kensington, Fleet Street and Greenwich.

Each walk has an accompanying map showing the location of the pubs. The maps are useful although a little small.

Unfortunately, the book suffers from some very poor photography. All photos are black and white and some have been blown up from very small images resulting in poor quality.

The book does attempt to give you an idea of the beers available in each pub but like every other pub book, by the time you get to visit one of the pubs, the beers will most likely have changed.

The book runs at almost 300 pages and offers some detailed information about both the pubs and the historical parts of London. This sets the book apart from many other London pub books.

Purchase the Book

The book is published by Carlton and costs £12.99. You can get the book cheaper from the usual places including Amazon and The Book Depository.
