It might seem like a strange thing to recommend, but we were first told to go to The Philharmonic for the men’s toilets alone. We won’t go into great detail, but these are probably the most aesthetically impressive toilets in the UK. The pub? Well that is a beaut as well, a stunning old boozer with history in the walls and enthusiasm in its eyes, and plenty of great beer in its taps. This is one of the most impressive Victorian pubs in the country.
