The newspaper offices have long moved eastward but Fleet Street remains as rich a repository of stories, people and history as before. So many who are identified with London either worked, lived or drank here. Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese was a meeting place for literary giants – and the atmosphere in this famous pub is still a delight for locals and visitors alike.
Its wooden bars, roof and floors remind us of the utility of timber in building construction. Wooden floors remain popular today for their inherent beauty and natural feel - but also because they are durable and very easy to keep clean.

Useful facts about Fleet Street:
Fleet Street is a street in the City of London named after the River Fleet, London's largest underground river. It was the home of British national newspapers until the 1980s. Even though the last major British news office, Reuters, left in 2005, the term Fleet Street continues to be used as a metonym for the British national press. Other related businesses near Fleet Street include The Wall Street Journal in Fleet Place, the New Law Journal, the Perseus Books Group, Bowker UK, Motor Cycle News, the Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers, and the London Press Club.
To the south lies an area of legal buildings known as the Temple, formerly the property of the Knights Templar, which at its core includes two of the four Inns of Court: the Inner Temple and the Middle Temple. There are many lawyers' offices (especially barristers' chambers) in the vicinity. Nearby, on Strand, are the Royal Courts of Justice and the Central Criminal Court on Old Bailey are also only a few minutes’ walk from Ludgate Circus.
Fleet Street is also famous for the barber Sweeney Todd, traditionally said to have lived and worked in Fleet Street (he is sometimes called the 'Demon Barber of Fleet Street'). An early example of a serial killer, the character appears in various English language works starting in the mid-19th century. Neither the popular press, the Old Bailey trial records, the trade directories of the City nor the lists of the Barbers' Company mention any such person or indeed any such case.
