Prospect of Whitby
Do not be surprised if the waiter or the barman of the pub offers you to put your head into the noose. There really is a hanging noose in this pub. Initially, this institution, in the beginning of the XVI century, served as a refuge for pirates and bandits. Sometimes the authorities hung the most distinctive people in the backyard. Over time, the British turned this place into a pub that served as a reminder of the deeds of their ancestors. By the way, there is a version that Charles Dickens sometimes came here to have a glass.
