George Inn, London
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The major attraction is the lovely two-storey gallery that looks out onto The George Yard. These outdoor galleries used to be a feature of many London inns, but today only the George preserves this tradition.
The George was worthy of a mention by Charles Dickens in his novel Little Dorrit. The inn is owned by the National Trust, who have leased it to a private company to operate as a normal pub, so the George is open normal pub hours.
The George is very close to other major Southwark attractions, making it very easy to combine a visit with a trip to see Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, the Fashion Museum, The Clink museum, the Golden Hinde, and Southwark Cathedral, among other nearby places to see.
