    Default List/ map wanted of all closed down pubs in UK

    Hi all
    I'm looking for a list a map of all the pubs that are now closed!
    Reason being is I'm considering renting a pub off the brewery in a few years time so long as the location is right
    This is to cater to a different clientele then the usual general public

    Thanks

    You can see closed pubs by area on the Pubs Galore main site as long as you enable them to be shown.

    Closed pubs are specifically excluded from the maps, mainly to avoid clutter but also because this is a site that seeks to promote pub-going, and you can't go to a closed pub, by definition!

    The other difficulty you will have is identifying which pubs are closed by demolition, closed by conversion to other uses that preserve the building, closed but expected to reopen after refurbishment, or just closed and no one knows anything about them.

    As Moby points out, if you have a particular area in mind, you can identify all the closed pubs there by clicking on either a postal town or an area within that postal town, and ticking the box marked "show closed pubs".

    Good luck!

    So not for the "general public", so for whom?

    Sounds rather elitist to me, find your own pub pal.
    Ok, maybe just for one......................

    As pointed out, one of my local closed pubs is now a Tesco Express, other is a Morrison's Local, other is an ice cream parlour, one a local Co Op, another is block of flats, another is empty listed building

    You will have a job finding out which is available or just vanished as pub

    An interesting business idea and good luck with it, but I think everyone on here would be more interested in a closed pub reopening as a pub.

    If you want to see them all on a map together, try whatpub.com which has an icon "view closed pubs only", but this generally only shows pubs that have shut since that guide was started in the last 2 to 3 years.
