Pub
$$
“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. ”

Theatre
“It's a much-loved institution... one of only three puppet theatres in the country, the Little Angel Theatre doesn’t just put on puppet shows, it makes the figures in the attached workshop too. Dame Judi Dench, Clive Owen, Sir Simon Rattle and Michael Rosen are just some of the theatre's trustees. Established in 1961, the theatre features its own productions and travelling companies from abroad, developing and keeping puppetry alive and children amazed. ”
