London's best beer gardens
Forget the history and the pomp of this pub on the Thames smugglers trail, in summer it’s all about the perfect patio on the bank of the Thames. Concealed on one of Wapping’s cobbled streets, The Prospect of Whitby belies its chain pub reincarnation and dazzles with its river vistas.
Our pick of London's oldest pubs
Everybody knows the Prospect of Whitby and everybody loves it. Why? Because its old, atmospheric and on the river. Dating back to the 1600s, the Prospect of Whitby has seen murderous villains, pirates and smugglers associated with it over the years and the hangman’s noose visible by the river outside is just one reminder.
