The George Inn
It is known that the George Inn existed in the late 16th Century although the present building dates from 1677. Both Shakespeare and Dickens knew the hospitality of the inn which has continued right up to the present day.
The inn is now owned by The National Trust.

The George Inn † Est 1676
Records of this coaching inn date back to 1542 although the current building dates back to 1676 when it was rebuilt following a devastating fire. During 1874 the north range was pulled down, however, thankfully the southern range survived to be London's last galleried coaching inn. William Shakespeare often frequented the inn, as did the novelist Charles Dickens who referred to The George in his novel Little Dorrit.

This Building is owned by... The National Trust
