Pubs and Clubs are other attractions for tourists to experience the nightlife in London. Each part of London has its clubs, pubs and devotees.
Public house or Pub is a licensed place to sell and serve alcohol. typically a place for drinking beer along with some other drinks. it’s a social place where people gathering for having a drink and chat about.
Several surveys reported that the number of pubs in the UK gone down Since 2000 by 17%. The survey also held responsible on a number of factors such as – high taxes which ends up high fees on pints, the smoking ban, raising the cost of food and drinks, the financial recession which leaves the consumers to spend much less for drinking out. people buy much more beers from superstores and shops. Due to offering more choices of beers in off- licences and supermarkets customers prefer to buy their drinks from these places.
However, drinking in a pub still is part of British culture along with Irish, Breton, Canadian, New Zealand, Australians and South African cultures. In lots of locations, mainly in villages, the pub is the centre point of the neighbourhood and the local community. In the 17th-century Samuel Pepys defined the pub as “the heart of England”.
The majority of pubs close at 11 pm. Although recent statute reforms allow premises to apply for a 24-hour license, some pubs have stuck to 11 pm closing but chain pubs, bars and clubs generally stay open later.
Most tourists tend to stay in the West End due to their preferences. The West of London, Chelsea, Notting Hill and Park Lane, as well as a few places in Marylebone and the West End, cater for the posh end of the market.
Some may be chain pubs, mass marketed to get tourists, and it can be hard to tell the difference from the outside!
So step out from your routine for a few days and let ‘The Old Smoke’ cherish you. Rest assured, you won’t get bored or tired. Samuel Johnson has rightly said,” When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.”
