HEADING to the pub for a pint is part of British culture, with nearly 40,000 venues across the UK.

If you fancy a beer without the crowds, thankfully there are some huge pubs in the country where you can still get some personal space.

We've rounded up some of the largest drinking establishments across the country, from converted cinemas to the longest bar in England.

The Regal, Cambridge

The Regal, a Wetherspoons pub, was originally built in 1937 as the Regal cinema.

It was then the most up-to-date cinema in Cambridge and called a ‘palace’ by cinema-goers of the 1930s.

Today you can stop by for a pint and a pizza while watching something on the big screens.

The Royal Victoria Pavilion, Ramsgate

A Grade II listed building, The Royal Victoria Pavilion was left empty for years after it was abandoned and discovered to have asbestos.

The interior is said to be derived from the Little Theatre at Versailles, although has been a nightclub, a casino, and then a Wetherspoons since 2017.

The World's End, Camden

The World's End is popular with locals, and has enough space for punters thanks to the two bars and mezzanine balcony.

Many upcoming bands are often caught at the pub, as they attempt to get famous, with open mic nights too.
