2 Bull Inn Court, Strand Covent Garden
One of London’s oldest pubs, The Nell Gwynne was named after Eleanor ‘Nell’ Gwynne. Originally a fruit seller in Covent Garden, she later became one of the first female actors performing in the West End. It was here that she made a favourable impression on the then regent King Charles ll; later becoming his mistress and mother to two of his children. Famed for her humour, Samuel Pepys described here as ‘pretty, witty Nell’.
The pub today is one of the few remaining authentic Free Houses in central London. If you visit you will find a pub that’s maintained it’s history, charm and very steep stairs to the toilets.
