Called the Street of Shame, there’s more to this road between the City of London and the City of Westminster than its newspaper heritage. Follow the trail left by monks and monarchs, press barons and literary giants along the highway and down its twisting alleyways.

On this literary walk you'll:

Walk along narrow lanes south of St Paul’s Cathedral, learn about the important Blackfriars’ Monastery and come across a 17th century livery hall

Hear stories about Bridewell Palace and Hospital and the infamous Fleet Prison

See a plaque to the renowned writer Edgar Wallace

Admire the spire of St Bride’s Church, the inspiration for wedding cakes

Learn about the dominance of the newspaper barons and compare the architecture of the impressive Daily Express and Daily Telegraph buildings

Meet Samuel Pepys, whose famous diary has left us with a unique insight into 17th century life, and Samuel Johnson - and his cat Hodge!

Discover another hidden place of worship, the Whitefriars Priory

Find out all about the infamous Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street
