This street is the former home of the printing and newspaper industry. All the major newspapers relocated their offices and printing presses during the 1980's for cheaper premises elsewhere. The street now has shops and takeaways to serve the management consultants and investment specialists offices here.

Yes many years previously this used to be the centre of publishing and many of the big names were here including the Mirror, The Sun and the Spreadsheets also - nowadays it is restaurants and shops although these do not open the same times as the centre of London due to their position so be aware of when you want...

This area is still a great area of historical interest although the newspaper aspect has now changed from this area after so many years of then having the hierarchy of Fleet Street There are still interesting to see and visit although this is the city of London so expect everything to be closed at around 5 o clock

You can take a bus down the length of Fleet Street in 5 minutes and you will get a great view of St Paul's Cathedral but will think there is no much to see. You would be wrong. It is worth walking from The Royal Courts of Justice at the west end (visit inside if you can). Also go behind... More

Used a walking tour of the Old City from an old book - very interesting to see the changes since the book was published. I miss the Information Centre that used to be on Lower Regent Street. The Centre across the street from St. Paul's is not as extensive but is the best Information Centre I know in London -... More

The whole of London's financial district buttons up tight after 5 p.m. And is deadly quiet ona Saturday night. If you're looking for nightlife, or just life, go to Picadilly or Southwark. On the financial and legal business streets there are few pedestrians and all the pubs and shops close early.

if you are planning a visit to St Paul's spend some time in Fleet Street which is nearby as it has a lot of history and some of the buildings associated with the famous newspapers are still there and operating

Fleet Street is pure history - and besides that, it's just as alive as ever! History meets the present on this wonderful street in the heart of London, and Law meets the Press; if you enter Fleet Street from the Inns of Court, you become particularly aware of that - and since I've worked as a reporter and my boyfriend...

From the age of busy horse drawn thoroughfare of a bygone age to the hectic area kit is now- no heart of the newspaper industry left now but replaced by an expansion of lawyers and offices representing the needs of financial gains-banks have been converted to wine bars also reasonable traditional pubs-good for morning coffee -lunch and evening meals-established licenced...
