DSCF7079dHidden away standing lonely on its own, a true survivor from the blitz that decimated this part of East London during  World War 2. The Palm Tree pub sits like an abandoned film set relic, a time capsule left alone in Mile End Park alongside the Regents Canal. Stepping thru the door of this grade two listed building will transport you to an era of that long lost atmosphere of what  proper East End boozers were all about.. Not the best pub in London, but one that should be sought out before the onslaught of the developers. A few streets away I came across another reminder of the past… The notorious East End gangsters, the Kray twins who may well have frequented The Palm Trees for a pint or two or just good old extortion!!!
