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

One of the things we like to see in this area of London is the Temple Bar Memorial, which stands in the middle of the street, making the boundary of Westminster and The City as well as the boundary between Fleet Street and The Strand. This is a historically important landmark and an attractive monument to have a look at... More

For those collecting the "been there, done it" range if T-shirts, this is a famous London street that was once the hub of the country's national newspaper industry. A little bird now tells me that they have mostly moved on to his canary friend's wharf. Still, the old place is worth a quick look.

Fleet street was the centre of the British newspaper industry for over 400 years, now all moved to Canary Wharf. Not a lot to see or do except for a few old buildings and pubs. Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese being one of them. Worth a visit.

Fleet Street is one of those London attractions, like Carnaby Street and Abbey Road, that is an attraction purely on the strength of its name. In fact, at least Carnaby Street still sells clothes, and Abbey Road is a working studio, whereas no publishing is done from Fleet Street these days. So while there’s history to it, there’s nothing specific... More

Although no longer the hub of the British newspaper industry, Fleet Street is still quite special in it's appearance and atmosphere. I visited on a work day and the Royal Courts of Justice is a fabulous building to admire!

Fleet Street was the home of British national newspapers until the 1980s. The last one to leave was Reuters in 2005 but the term Fleet Street still continues to be used as a metonym for the British national press.
