DIY pub tour visiting Heritage Pubs
Want to design your own pub holiday or tour? Take some inspiration from the pubs listed by CAMRA's (the Campaign for Real Ale) Pub Heritage Group. This is a CAMRA sub-group committed to protecting the UK's dwindling stock of intact historic pub interiors; pubs on its list are awarded the title 'Real Heritage Pub'. There are pubs listed all over the UK and there are some really beautiful buildings listed, many of these still serving traditional real ales too. Take a look, and then get planning that tour!
