Here are images of just some of the thousands of pubs that have played such an important part in London’s history and culture.

Some pubs are still operating as takeaways during lockdown – so check their websites – but all will need customers’ support when they are able to open again.

London is home to around 3,500 pubs in total, and pictured here is just a selection of those restricted by the government’s lockdown measures.

For some readers, their local pub will be central to their lives – a place to meet friends, a place they got together with their partner. Some readers will be members of the darts team or will be there every Wednesday without fail for the quiz. Some will pop in occasionally, before a meal out. Many will remember fondly their younger, perhaps wilder, days.

Whether they are food-led, late night dancing spots or simply a good place for a chat, we wish all our great pubs the best of luck.
