Whist in London over the Holidays I passed this pub on the way to the British Museum and had to stop to get a photo of the lovely Blue Door. I love the hanging sphere plants and that shade of blue.
I did a quick search to see how long the pub has been there and found it’s been there a LONG TIME! In 1856 a John Russell was in the postal directory at this address.
Here’s the link to the London pub wiki that shares the pub’s history.

I really like this shade of blue. Delightful photo. Your door pics are awesome. 💙
Me too, isn’t it lovely with the black and gold accents. Thank you so much, Camie!
That is so cool! I love that shade of blue, too. Recently I read “Mudlark”, by a woman who combs along the shore of the Thames for artifacts that are exposed by the water. It was a fascinating read, giving glimpses into the history of London.
Oh, that does sound like an interesting book. I’ll look for it. I need to make a library run.
Cool! I hope you like it. I found it a bit dry I’m places so I’d skim to the next bit.
Hanging sphere plants are unique, Deborah. From here it looks like freshly painted blue? I am enjoying all of your London photos!
Your guess is as good as mine on the freshness of the paint. It does look clean and elegant doesn’t it? I can’t tell you how happy I was to have passed just this pub on my way to the British Museum! The Spirits knew I wanted to see great doors on this trip to London. 😀 I must have been living good in their opinion because I passed this door and pub.
I just loved London. So much gorgeous architecture. And that blue is just great!! 🙂
Wow, that’s a long time to be there. Wonderful photo, Deborah.
Gorgeous pub — Plus FOOD. So many pubs, so little time.
Love the shade of blue, both beautiful and inviting!
This was striking. Love the door and the blue paint.
That unique shade of blue gets to me, too.
I like the colour of this pub. Nice.
I am imagining sitting inside with a nice brew, Deborah. Those are very nice doors to share.
Thank you, Dan! Sadly, we didn’t wander back that way for lunch or dinner.
1856? How cool is that? Love that color of blue.
I know right! I’m glad you like the color too. 🥰
London definitely knows how to do colorful buildings, great doors, and wonderful green accents in hanging baskets, window boxes, and planters. This is a perfect Thursday Door. 🙂
I agree with you there too! Thank you so much, Judy!
Hope you tried a drop of English ale! 🍺
I didn’t just that German beer, but I did have wine…oh wait I think it was French and California only though.
Ooo… I like this a lot, Debora. It’s a lovely shot, and the perfect shade of blue. Hugs!
I’m glad you like it, Teagan! That shade of blue is lovely. I might have to add it my palette.
A pint must taste particularly good, served in this pub 😊. Nicely done, Deborah!
I bet it would be! We never wandered back that way to find out. Next visit! 😁🍺
You were in the UK? What a surprise! Hope you had a great time:) Attractive doors:)
You many have an error in your link to Thurs. Doors – I clicked on it twice, and it went to my own blog. Then I clicked on your name next to your photo, and voila, I am here!
I was in the UK! It was a fun trip.
The link in the comments at Norm’s post today didn’t work? I don’t know how to edit the comments there? Or even if comments are editable?
You could put a new comment in, with a new perma link?
Did that! Thank you!
