We strolled along Fleet street and I enjoyed the mix of old and new architecture. Some of the older buildings were very ornate and interesting. Look out for the home of DC Thomson,publishers of the Dandy and Beano- very fun window. We were surprised to find a statue of Mary, Queen of Scots, on a building.

Nothing spectacular on this street except The Royal Court of Justice.at one end of it in The Strand area. You can view The Cathedral of St. Paul from other end of this street. There are many offices, restaurants, Cafes, fast food joints and pubs on this street. Temple area is close by.

The famous Fleet Street its a very busy area of London especially during Lunch time as many office workers eat at the restaurants in Fleet street. Along the street you will find all the major high street cafes, fast food restaurants, pubs and restaurants from different countries. Don't forget the side streets as there are many hidden gems (restaurants) there.

If visiting and time constrained, you would be better off to spend your efforts elsewhere. We went here from the London Tower explicitly to see and tour Temple Church, but unfortunately it was closed for choral practice. Not a lot to see here. Stopped in a cute little fast food place (Gino"s) for a quick lunch bite before heading off... More

I think I walk a few blocks of Fleet street and could have done more. Lots of construction and not as busy (or Fleet) as I thought it would be, but still a nice place to wander a bit!

Did the walk along this street hoping to see some iconically architectured press buildings, but more impressive were the little lane ways that run off the main road - keep an eye out for them!

Once upon a time this street used to hum with activity.Large lorries delivering huge vedrums of paper to the printing presses.However some fine buildings have been left behind.There is the former Telegraph building and the startling black art deck former express building.well worth the walk to view the exterior.
