Fleet Street and its Alleyways



 'dig a metre down and you come to a layer of human ashes'

Meeting point

St Pauls Cathedral, front steps by Queen Anne's statue

St Bride's Church - Fleet Street


Fleet Street – the street of ink – Starting at St Paul’s Cathedral and finishing at St Bride’s church, our walk explores an area with a rich history of much, much more than just newspapers. This walk tells the story of noble knights and lawyers, of taverns and Dr Johnson, without forgetting of course, printing and the press.
