Pubs and bars in London date as far back as the Roman times. The Romans sold food, ale and wine in places called Tabernae. After the departure of the Romans, ale houses sprang up all over the country. Ale is a potent brew of malted barley, similar to beer but without the hops. With increasing industrial pollution in England, water no longer was safe to drink, so ale became the drink of necessity. When the Romans left, pubs appeared all over the country.  Due to the massive amount of pollution water was often not safe to drink, so ale was drunk out of neccessity not just socially. Monks ran Inns, which catered for tired travellers.  In the Elizebethan era tavers were the norm and only sold wine. One of Londons oldest Inns is The George Inn on Borough High Street, SE1 near London Bridge. While there is still many historic places to drink, there is a whole host of modern bars in London that are well worth a look for a fantastic night out.   Getting to London London is Englands capital city. There are over 13 million people who call it their home and many of these are enjoying the diverse and vibrant nightlife the UKs biggest city has on offer. Getting to London is easy from almost everywhere.  For mainland rail have a look at prices on the train line or if you are on a budget try the National Express or Megabus. If you get here early there is a whole host of things to do in the capital.  London has beautif ul parks, fantastic shopping and loads of great places to eat.
