The London StoneThis City pub opposite Cannon Street station gets its name from the London Stone, a Roman stone that can still be seen embedded in a wall just outside with a plaque identifying it, and which is said to be the heart of London. Legend has it that as long as the stone is safe the city is too. Run by the Eerie Pub Company, there's a spooky Gothic theme and Fridays are special horror nights with a performing magician on the first Thursday of the month. There are other trapdoor touches - the gents, for example, is accessed through a book case which doubles as a door. Halloween is an especially spooky night to visit when you can expect plenty of fancy dressed fun to be had.
