The pub history sites are developed by Stephen Harris and kevan, plus an 'open' group of like-minded individuals; and anyone is welcome to contribute. We are not a society, but a random group of people with similar interests in mapping the usage of old buildings, public houses, taverns, hotels and Inns through time.
A directory of thousands of London public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in London. The site is not just aimed at the many public houses which still exist or have existed over the years. This is an alternative view of London over the past 200 years using pubs as a means of mapping the London street directory. The modern postcode system is confusing but it does group large areas into a common band. Historically I list pubs according to their placement according to the parish church as is listed in the earlier census which existed in 1911 and earlier.

There are currently around 2450 pubs listed and many are still missing from this list. These all correspond to those found in the London BT 1971 Telephone directories The telephone number is not registered as it would be wildly out of date; and a few London Pubs are from the 1970 directory. Links are back to the deadpubs site which shows a considerable amount of past history of these London pubs and their past residents.
