Im a big fan of the musical and movie Sweeney Good and made it a point to walk Fleet street. Its a street with much to see for a nice stroll. If your a fanbof the musical you probably would want to go just to say you did.

Walk along this street towards the great abbey of St Paul's and try to imagine what it must have been like in the past. From the time of Samuel Johnson, he who said "if you are tired of London you`re tired of life" to the years when the newspapers were published in great numbers. Along the way try to see... More

This is the street our hotel was located on. It is a beautiful and historic street to walk up and down...then again, we felt that way about every street in London. This place is absolutely amazing.

It is very nice to walk by Fleet Street. There is a very old pub there that probably Samuel Johnson said "If you are tired of London you`re tired of life"!!!! It is a very famous street in London and it is easy to find because it is down to St. Paul`s Cathedral. I`ve enjoyed very much to be walk... More

As is true of much of London, Fleet Street is brimming with history. For comparison, this is just a bit less interesting than Strand. Having said said that, they run into each other and it is definitely worth visiting both.

If you are tired of typical London's attractions you should visit this place. It's near St Paul's cathedral but you will not find there crowds. This play has a great history. It's actually a birthplace of most of British world famous newspapers as more for a century offices of media has been located there. Somewhere you can find plaque incorporated... More

A visit to Fleet Street was a must as it was literally around the corner from our hotel. Fascinated by print media, I enjoyed spotting the remaining evidence that all print media was once based here. Many of the buildings are stunning.

Well. Fleet Street is a nice historical stroll . If u just view the outside it's a little boring but if you start asking questions there is a darker very interesting mind tour. I started asking about the underground there and several shops acted like I was crazy but, then a lilies shop let in into their back room and... More

Take a walk in London's historical street. Home to the Temple Bar and Somerset House, connecting with The Strand, this is a nice street to stroll on your way from Covent Garden to St. Paul's. Sweeney Todd (from the play, or the Johnny Depp movie from 2007 if you prefer) lived in Fleet Street and indeed you can find a... More
