Fleet Street is a main thoroughfare from Temple Bar in the west to Ludgate Circus in the east. This area started as a print district of newspapers and presses, but later shifted to legal and financial offices. The Fleet Street area includes the Court of Justice, Inns of Court, barristers’ chambers, and various offices, as well as renovated commercial properties for rent.
Many of the former banks of Fleet Street have been renovated into wine bars and restaurants with views of St. Paul’s cathedral. Similarly, 16th century publishing hubs like Ludgate Hill’s courtyards have been transformed into new investment properties for sale and offices to let. Historical pubs once popular with journalists remain, though, as do memorials to various press figures and other monuments like the dragon at Temple Bar. Nearby High Street includes cafes, fast food, and international restaurants, and you can visit the Embankment Galleries and Courtland Institute of Art in this area, as well.
Several prominent financial institutes still call the area home, including the Goldman Sachs headquarters in the old Daily Telegraph building. However, Fleet Street is an area on the move, with even this long-time resident renovating their headquarters into a sprawling office block. Alongside similar regeneration projects, 85 Fleet Street will provide 7,600 square metres of office space in town the former Reuters headquarters. In short, Fleet Street is the place to be for centrally-located, high quality commercial property for sale or rent in the London metro area.
