Nice walk

Nice walk in that street. We're fans of Sweeney Todd so we were expecting allusions to the barber but we found only one. Nice buildings around there.

This is not Fleet Street, but actually Curzon Street. Fleet street is in SOHO near St. Paul's catherdral. Had an interesting conversation with a local gentleman who informed us of the unfortunate mistake.

Fleet Street is lined with reminders of its role at the centre of the British newspaper industry. Countless narrow lanes branch off it and often hide a characterful pub or historical treat you could easily walk past unknowingly. Here's a few sights to look for which can be very easily missed. Starting at the western end you have the Law... More

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.

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
