A2 England s famous pubs Some pubs are real monuments of English history. Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem in Nottingham is considered the oldest in England. It dates back to 1189 and its name comes from the crusading knights who stopped there during their journey to Jerusalem. The Turks Head in Penzance, Cornwall, dates back to 1233 and takes its name from the Turks (pirates from North Africa) who invaded Penzance around that time and who used a tunnel running from the pub to the harbour . The Crooked House, in Dudley, is definitely the weirdest pub in the UK. It was built at the end of the 18th century on a hollow ground that caused the building to slope . Inside, the walls and floors are slanted and it gives a funny sense of confusion. 2 Indica se le frasi sono vere o false e correggi le false. INVALSI READING 1.

Scottish Breweries Beer has been produced in Scotland for about 5,000 years because the Celtic tradition of using bitter herbs survived in Scotland for longer than the rest of Europe. Scottish brewing reached a peak of 280 breweries in 1840, but then breweries started merging and this brought about some changes. The higher hop quantity of some beers made them perfect products for export, so Edinburgh and Alloa became famous centres for the export of beer around the world. By 1920, there were only 62 breweries left. The decline continued and by 1960 there were 26 and by 1970 only 11. At the end of the 20th century, small breweries began to re-appear all over Scotland and the decline was reversed. Today, Scotland is home to 80 breweries.
