8. The Wilton Arms, Kinnerton Street

A few blocks northwest of the Horse & Groom, the Wilton Arms is located on Kinnerton Street. Despite its name, the Wilton Arms has a history similar to Groom Place.  In fact, the Wilton Arms, built in 1826, is listed, meaning it is a historic building with a status similar to a designated landmark in New York City.

For historical purists, the Wilton Arms is worth a visit. Unlike other old pubs that have undergone extensive renovations at some point, the listing entry notes that it is “unusual, dated example of a surviving 1820s public house.” Kinnerton Street also has several well-preserved former stables and coach houses.
