Feathers 1

Our first pub, The Feathers, 18-20 Broadway, SW1H 0BH – http://www.nicholsonspubs.co.uk/thefeatherswestminsterlondon/ – is late Victorian and takes its name from the heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales.

The nearest underground station is St. James’s Park. Take the Petty France exit (which may well be the only one open when we get there), turn right and then, after about 50 yards, turn right again into Broadway and you’ll see the pub just to the right of the Conrad Hotel.

The plan is to move on to the Grafton Arms, 2 Strutton Ground, SW1P 2HP – https://www.greeneking-pubs.co.uk/pubs/greater-london/grafton-arms/ – at around 8.45 and then The Albert, 52 Victoria Street, SW1H 0NP – https://www.greeneking-pubs.co.uk/pubs/greater-london/albert/ – at around 10.00.

The Grafton Arms, which dates from the mid-nineteenth century, is probably best known for being where Jimmy Grafton and the Goons wrote scripts for the Goon Show. The Albert, an ornate, listed, mid-Victorian building, now somewhat out of place in its surroundings, is named after the Prince Consort who had died in 1861, aged just 42.
