Online map reveals locations of 29,000 UK pubs

Related tags: British isles, United kingdom

Data analyst Ramiro Gomez has plotted the location of 29,000 pubs on an online map to show areas with the highest concentrations of pubs.


Predictably, pubs are concentrated in the major urban cities like London, Liverpool and Manchester but most of the British Isles does have a boozer nearby. The map is a reassuring site for publicans, showing there is still a large number of pubs despite fears of spiraling closures. Statistics released by the Campaign for Real Ale showed 29 pubs a week are closing.

Gomez chose the UK and Ireland because of the high numbers of pubs and used data from Open Street Map​.
