Spaniards InnThe Spaniards Inn
The Spaniards Inn dates back to being built as a tollgate inn in 1585 and is thought to have been visited, possibly regularly, by notorious highwayman, Dick Turpin. The pub has also been featured in the literary works including Bram Stoker's Dracula and the Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens. In addition to its history, the public house's interior features dark wood-panelling.
Like the Duke of Hamilton, nearby, this pub is neither one of London's Real Heritage Pubs nor a listed building. However, it is a famous atmospheric pub which made it a good choice for the end of our Evening Crawl of Hampstead in August 2013.
