A white-collar crowd mingles with tourists Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, which survived the Great Fire of London in 1666. Locals say the pub's lack of natural lighting generates a gloomy charm, something that appealed to authors such as Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, Alfred Tennyson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and G. K. Chesterton, who were all regulars. The pub is alluded to in Dickens's "A Tale of Two Cities" as a haunt where a gentleman could recoup "his strength with a good plain dinner and good wine." | © Steve Raymer / National Geographic Creative
