Print edition of Around the Tube in 80 Pubs Now Available

Around the Tube in 80 Pubs brings you 80 of the best pubs in London, all of them within a 10-minute walk of a tube station. Aimed at visitors and residents alike, the book covers some of the city’s most historic pubs as well as some of the best of the newer arrivals, such as the BrewDog chain and the excellent pubs that have been opening at the mainline train stations.


There’s also a range of pubs chosen for their riverside or canalside locations, meaning you’ll be relaxing with a drink by the water within ten minutes of leaving the tube. For overseas visitors not familiar with the tube, the book explains how to use it, how to buy your tickets and how to get to the station you want. For each recommended pub, the book even tells you which exit to take from the station, gives you step-by-step directions, and provides a map for each pub listed.



Arranging the pubs alphabetically by tube station, there are recommendations for 53 of the stations on the tube network. Each entry has a map and a photo, as well as practical information on opening hours, when food is served, phone, address and website.


There are also step-by-step directions on how to find each pub when you exit the tube station, and what you’ll see on the way. For each pub the book also provides local information, such as which major tourist attractions are nearby, but also some offbeat information about the area, the streets, the buildings or people associated with the area. Finally there’s a full description of each pub, so you know whether it has outside seating, upstairs rooms, quiet corners that aren’t immediately obvious, and what beers you might expect to find there.
