Pimlico Tavern & Pimlico Pleasure Gardens, Hoxton

Pimlico Tavern & Pimlico Pleasure Gardens, Hoxton

It seems likely that this tavern and pleasure gardens took the name of a publican with the foreign name 'Pimlico'. There were many places of entertainment nearby and the whole area became known as Pimlico. Later another area of London also gained a reputation for its places of entertainment and so that acquired the same name, Pimlico, and never lost it.
