Weird News: Woman visits 972 pubs

November 16, 2015

A woman has visited all 972 branches of Wetherpoon's. Mags Thomson decided in 1994 that she and her husband Ian should endeavour to visit ever single branch of the popular pub chain.

Ian passed away in 2010 - by which point they'd just crossed the 700 mark - but Mags has since gone on to realise her long-time ambition, saying it's taken on a deeper meaning since her husband's passing. She said: "I go to new pubs, but I also visit ones where Ian and I went as a couple. It can get emotional."
