National Trust: George Inn, The George Inn YardBorough High Street was once crammed full of old coaching inns, providing accommodation and refreshment to weary pilgrims, merchants and travellers on their way up from Canterbury to the City. Now only The George - the single, original, galleried coaching inn left in London - remains standing as a testimony to this colourful, historic past. The current building dates back to 1676 when it was rebuilt following a fire. Oak beams, low ceilings, latticed windows, open fires and interlocking rooms provide the perfect retreat from the chaos of the world outside, but before you hide yourself away inside make sure you linger a bit in the cobbled courtyard and take in the unique undulating white galleries adorned with hanging baskets. It's interesting to compare this historic edifice with the modern building on the other side of the courtyard, which has incorporated the galleried style into its 21st century design. Offering a symbolic and poignant insight into London life past and present, this courtyard in its entirety is probably one of the most architecturally fascinating in London. The George's future has been in jeopardy more than once it nearly joined the ranks of the other extinguished hostelries when the Great Northern Railway demolished part of it to make way for a depot around the turn of last century. Now managed and preserved by the National Trust, its longevity assured, it regularly attracts streams of tourists and locals alike. It's tucked away down an alley off the high street so keep an eye out for the big sign directing you where to go. In winter they serve mulled wine in front of open fires in the cosy Old Bar, in summer the courtyard gets most of the attention. The restaurant (located on the first floor) is worth visiting if only for the chance to see the historic galleried section close up.
