“Resting spot with amazing views in the Trafalgar Tavern. Being able to count Charles Dickens and William Gladstone as past punters, this pub has been at the forefront of Britain’s naval history since 1837. The pub stands proudly on the bank of the river Thames, unlike most other riverside pubs which are only really enjoyable if you’re able to stand out in the sun to actually get a view of the river, there are quite a few tables in the pub which almost jut out on to the water so you have an unspoilt view. ”
