There are over 3,000 pubs in London. London's about 600 square miles, so
there would be twenty per square mile. The density of pubs is obviously
higher in the centre than the outskirts.

Interestingly, the density of *good* pubs seems to be a constant across the
whole UK (at about two per square mile).
