This article is about coaching inns in general, for individual inns see: Stagecoach Inn (Disambiguation)

The George Inn, Southwark is one of the few coaching inns to survive in Central LondonIn Europe, from approximately the mid-seventeenth century for a period of about 200 years, the coaching inn, sometimes called a staging inn, was a vital part of the inland transport infrastructure. Although many survive, and some still offer overnight accommodation, in general they have lost their original function and now fulfill much the same function as ordinary pubs.

[edit] Description
Coaching inns stabled teams of horses for stagecoaches and mail coaches and replaced tired teams with fresh teams. Traditionally they were seven miles apart but this depended very much on the terrain. Some English towns had as many as ten such inns and rivalry between them was intense, not only for the income from the stagecoach operators but for the revenue for food and drink supplied to the wealthy passengers. Barnet, Hertfordshire was one such location and even today boasts an unusually high number of historic pubs along its high street due to its former position on the main road from London to the North of England.
