Product description

This is the definitive guidebook to London's most unspoilt pubs. Ranging from gloriously rich Victorian extravaganzas to unspoilt community street-corner locals, this book is lavishly illustrated in colour. Combined with fascinating insights into London's brewing heritage, pub names, beer styles and more, "London Heritage Pubs - An Inside Story" is a must for anyone interested in London's pubs.There are a great many books about London pubs and a number about historic London pubs. None, however, take such a strict and detailed view of pub heritage as "London Heritage Pubs - An Inside Story" and none have the breadth of other content that marks this book out as such a unique and valuable title.A media campaign will support the launch.

Author information

Geoff Brandwood has a PhD in architectural history and a special interest in the Victorian age. He was Chairman of the Victorian Society from 2001-2007. Horrified by the wholesale disappearance of historic pub interiors in recent years, he is part of CAMRA's Pub Heritage Group which identifies and seeks greater recognition for the treasures we have left. He is co-author of English Heritage's best-selling Licensed to Sell: The History and Heritage of the Public House (2004). Jane Jephcote's interest in London's historic pub interiors began in 1991 when she joined CAMRA's London Pubs Group of which she is now Chair. The Group promotes the preservation of London's pub heritage and good pub design. Jane organises and leads crawls of pubs with interiors of note all over Greater London and was co-author with Geoff Brandwood of The CAMRA Regional Inventory for London: Pub Interiors of Special Historic Interest (2004).
