The Centre Page has gone by the past names of The Horn Tavern, The Horn Coffee House, and The Bugell, and is referenced in the 1663 diary of Samuel Pepys and the Charles Dickens literary classic, The Pickwick Papers. British-born Guy Fawkes was also known to frequent the pub, and was said to have conducted a meeting within its cellar walls.
Next, cross the Millennium Bridge and pass by the Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre as you walk to Anchor Bankside, a 17th-century pub situated on the banks of theThames River. Shakespeare himself supposedly enjoyed a pint of ale or two within the walls of the Anchor, a place that has been used as a tavern, brewery, and ships chandler. Its also played host to a wealth of other notable patrons including Dr. Samuel Johnson, another of Englands best-known literary figures.
