The history of Greenwich is inseparable from its maritime history and royal palace. In later years, industries also built up along the River Thames’ frontage, including the massive power station that powered London’s tram and Underground systems. Today, the old industrial area on the peninsula in East Greenwich is home to the O2 dome. Greenwich’s pubs reflect the town’s history, from the Georgian Cutty Sark and Trafalgar Tavern on the river, to pubs serving the market, cinemagoers and residents. It is also the home of the Meantime Brewery, which acknowledges the Meridian Line centred on Greenwich.
In Greenwich Pubs, author David C. Ramzan takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the area’s watering holes, many of which have retained features and traditions of previous ages. Brimming with quirky tales and fascinating facts, this carefully crafted guide initiates readers into the fascinating history of Greenwich’s pubs.
