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...

Walking Fleet Street is like taking steps back in time. Many, many very historical pubs along the way for refreshment. The courthouses to visit. Make sure you wander into the many small alleyways to discover even more!

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.
