The George

The George Pub, Strand, City of Westminster, London
The George on the Strand, est. 1723
213 Strand, City of Westminster
London, October 2009

“Although the design of the building appears to be 18th century it is in fact late Victorian, even the reproduction half-timbered façade. The work was commissioned by the then owner and entrepreneur Frederick Stanley in the late 1890s, following a popular Victorian trend of imitating the timbered style of several centuries earlier. Allegedly the headless ghost of a cavalier haunts the cellar.”

Hopefully it'll still be there for a long time!
