The White Swan Inn - Pickering, United Kingdom

Originally built in 1532 as a four-room cottage, it was soon extended and pressed into service as a coaching inn for the York to Whitby stagecoach. The White Swan has been open for business as an inn more or less ever since the 16th century. Two notable exceptions were when it served as the town’s Court House for a brief spell, and during the last War when it served as Pickering Garrison’s NCO Mess. The family running today has owned it since 1953.
