Trafalgar Tavern



Trafalgar Tavern

Magnificent Regency style pub was built in 1837

Location: Park Row, Greenwich, London, SE10 9NW

Description: This grade 1 listed magnificent Regency style pub was built in 1837, the year Queen Victoria came to the throne. In the mid-19th century this was one of several grand Greenwich hotels that became famous for their Whitebait Suppers, attended by senior Members of Parliament; the Liberals at the Trafalgar, the Tories at the Ship (demolished). Many came by river, still the nicest way to reach Greenwich.

Many distinguished diners have frequented here by boat such as Charles Dickens, William Thackeray and Wilkie Collins. Indeed Dickens based the wedding breakfast scene in Our Mutual Friend here in this tavern.

It was built by architect Joseph Kay, surveyor to the Royal Hospital Estates.
