Fleet Street Guide
A major street in the City, Fleet Street offers premium office space to businesses from a wide range of industries. Since the 1500s, Fleet Street has been associated with printing and publication, with the majority of Britain’s national newspapers based there by the 1900s. Although many of the newspapers have since moved away from the area, many of their former office buildings are now listed. There are also a significant number of statues and monuments near Fleet Street, including memorials to prominent figures from the British press.
Fleet Street is now more associated with the investment banking, legal and accountancy professions with many of the old newspaper offices becoming the London headquarters for various companies.
