The Three Queens Hotel is situated in a part of the town which dates back to Tudor times.

It is reputed that three Queens of England visited here - hence the name.

The Three Queens is still a working hotel.

The Bridge Inn is the only alehouse still brewing their own beer and fruit wines.

There is an old worldly atmosphere as the pub has little changed for centuries - you can almost sense the presence of characters from the past still haunting the place.

The Bridge Inn is near the Old Burton Bridge.

Traditionally, the premises along Horninglow Street included maltings, granary houses, blacksmiths, horse and cab proprietors, wheelwrights and cork manufactures.

Opposite the Law Courts with its unusual decorative architecture and dome, is Coor's Visitors and Tourist Information Centre.

There is little evidence left of the farming community that once surrounded St Johns Church, except Brooks Farm House, a few cottages, The Plough Inn, and some streets with agricultural names.
