The โ€œoldestโ€ pub in England. Apparently, the landlord boards go back to 1760 but there's a cave inside which dates back to 1070. There's also a wooden galleon on display. Don't touch it though! It's rumoured to be cursed. ๐Ÿ’€

River Thames

Wishlisted

Would come here to hopefully catch some swan-upping! It's an annual ceremony in England wherein they census the swans on the Thames & other places. The reason for this is because the Queen enjoys ownership of all unmarked swans in open water.
