Historic Pub Walks
As the days grow shorter and there’s a wintry chill in the air, there’s no better time to enjoy the warm glow of a historic pub.
Whether it’s meeting friends and family in a beautiful historic building or taking time out from the hustle and bustle near a roaring log fire, these atmospheric properties, at the heart of local life for many years, connect us to our communities past and present.
Heritage pubs walking routes
In celebration of our historic pubs, we’ve created walking routes through the heart of cities across England, which we hope will whet your thirst for the local heritage that surrounds us.
Whether you’re home for Christmas or staying with friends and family, it’s a great time to get out and explore the history around you.
Walking routes include:
Our curated historic pub walks will help you explore the unique charm of listed buildings in these city centres that were once (or are currently) used as public houses.
Historic England is not endorsing the venues, merely providing information on buildings and their architecture for drinkers and non-drinkers alike.
Cheers for our historic pubs
There are wonderful historic pubs in every part of England and we’d love to hear about your favourite listed pub. Each place has its own tale to tell and is waiting for you to capture a missing piece of its story. We’d love to see your photographs and memories of your listed local. Perhaps there’s a regular who knows all about the pub’s history and could record an audio or film clip?
Your story helps us to understand what makes these remarkable buildings so special and significant.
