5 pubs with amazing interiors in London

1) The Princess Louise

A fine example of a 19th-century ‘gin palace’ this large hostelry has one of the most spectacularly ornate pub interiors in London. It dates from 1891 and is very well preserved with original features including panelled wooden booths, bevelled glass, a circular bar and mosaic tiling. The whole building is listed for its historic merit with the men’s toilets having a special listing of their own for their incredible monumental marble fittings.
