Best Places to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse
Combine London's 8 million residents with its 607 square miles of space and you've got a very high population density. Not only does this make it a nightmare to get anywhere on the tube in rush hour but, more importantly, it makes the capital a pretty damn awful place to be when the zombies come munching. Luckily, we've already created a zombie contingency plan and scouted out the best places to survive a zombie apocalypse in London. From rooftop bars, to basement clubs and secret speakeasies, there's a number of great London bars to shelter in until it all blows over. See you on the other side humanity!
Zombies are too uncoordinated to learn how to swim, therefore, get yourself to Bar&Co sharpish if you want to hop on board one of the best places to survive a zombie apocalypse. Whilst this party boat is normally moored, they could definitely pull up anchor in this special circumstance. You may struggle when the champagne and cocktails run dry but hopefully, by then, you'll have reached zombie-free lands.
As well as its stunning rooftop garden bar being the ideal place to survey the zombie-infested skylines, you'll be kept pepped up with pumping music and all night BBQs at The Roof Gardens. Also, whether it's their unhealthy diet or savage lifestyle, zombies don't tend to be particularly pretty or well-dressed so it's very doubtful that they'll get past this club's glamorous entry policy.
Zombies like their food hot, messy and preferably still alive. Therefore, the last place they'll be looking for a tasty treat is in a fridge. Hide inside The Breakfast Club's secret basement bar, The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town, to chill with a Gin Collins as the zombies stumble around outside. If the coast is clear, you can always pop upstairs for a pulled pork sandwich as well!
If zombies needed their thirst's quenching, alternative bar Intrepid Fox would be one of their favourite watering holes. Goth yourself up to head to this rock'n'roll bar and try to blend in with the creepy coffins, skeletons and creeping ivy that adorn the venue. Glug down a cider and enjoy a game of pool safe in the knowledge that they think you're one of them!
This historic pub's military theme couldn't make it a better place to survive a zombie apocalypse in. Take advantage of the military decoration by putting up a good fight with the bayonets and sabres strewn across the walls. Be warned that the pub is said to be haunted by the ghost of a dead officer so stow away your ouija boards unless you want to become the victim of another paranormal entity.
Given its protected location under the railway arches at Vauxhall, Fire is a great choice of hiding place if the worst case scenario occurs. Its multiple rooms, various archways and spacious, maze-like layout also make it prime for one epic game of hide and seek if any of the undead manage to wangle their way into the superclub.
Zombies aren't known for getting their five a day. Therefore, the mere smell of the vegan cakes and organic cocktails served up at vegan cafe and bar, inSpiral Lounge, are bound to have them running for the hills. If they do detect your scent through the wafts of goji berries and dehydrated kale chips, there's always Camden Lock next door to make a speedy getaway on.
If it's name didn't give you enough of a hint, The Bunker at Jupiter Wharf has a structure strong enough to give even the hardiest of brain-munchers a run for their money. This spacious events space can fit in a huge number of survivors and its location within the largest warehouse space in East London means it's got double the defences.
