Description: The Trafalgar Tavern was originally built as a Thames-side inn in 1837, and was famous for its delicious whitebait dinners that attracted members of the Cabinet and famous people like Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins. After its closure in 1915 it became the Royal Alfred Merchant Seamen's Institution. It was restored as a tavern in 1965.
