There are times when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life and a busy week to relax and unwind with a pint in a secluded pub. If that pub comes with a view overlooking the beautiful Thames by night, it gets even better.



Prospect of Whitby is one such riverside pub, the oldest in London, dating back to 1520. Boasting of an elite fan base that included the likes of Charles Dickens and Samuel Pepys to Kirk Douglas and Princess Margaret, the Prospect of Whitby offers more than your average pub.

Sipping on your glass of wine or smoking a cigarette out in the beer garden, you can almost revel in being a part of history. A haunt for pirates, smugglers and other men of the sea once upon a time, this pub in itself is made out of original ship masts and barrels.

A view of the Thames


We recommend it as a must see if you are new in London for its rich history, or as a perfect getaway spot with your better half to share a cosy moment overlooking the Thames.
