The Lamb is a Grade II listed Victorian pub that was probably built around 1729. The pub is one of a few pubs in London that retain the snob screens above the bar. Despite the sign featuring a picture of a Lamb, the pub is named after William Lamb who in 1577 rebuilt a water conduit in the area thus restoring a clean water supply to residents. The street on which the pub is located is called Lamb's Conduit Street.

The Argyll Arms is a busy pub located just off Oxford Circus in London. The pub dates from 1866 and unusually retains its original interior. The pub has fine etched and engraved glass through out, an ornate plaster ceili8ng and a large number of mirrors. Like many Victorian pubs, the Argyll has a number of partitions that split the pub into a number of booths. Each booth has its own access to the bar and offers privacy from neighbouring booths. You can see one of the partitions on the left of the photograph.

The Princess Louise is a fabulous Victorian pub that has one of the best interiors in London. BUilt in 1872, the pub had a refit in 1892 in which no expense was spared. The decoration is formidable: etched mirrors line the walls, surrounded by polychromatic tiling, elaborate terracotta friezes, patterned ceilings, marble pillars with gilt capitals, tiled floors (mosaics in the corridors) and stained and painted glass. Even the toilets are spectacular. The pub is a bit of a maze with 9 different spaces, including snugs, built around a huge central bar. If you're in London, the Princess Louise is certainly worth a visit. I've posted more photos of the pub over on Flickr.
