St Bridge’s Church
Although the last of the news agencies moved out of Fleet Street in the mid-2000s, the legacy of London’s great publishing street lives on if you know where to look for it. You can see the wedding-cake style spire of St Bride’s Church from the road, but you should really get closer to explore this fine church, still, today known as the spiritual home of London’s media.
The London Stone
You could easily walk past the London Stone at 111 Cannon Street, without even noticing it buried beneath a branch of W.H.Smith. A limestone fragment alleged to be a remnant of Roman London, the stone was once built into a long-destroyed church and moved to its current position in 1962. Since then it has been incongruously displayed behind a brass grille, with only a small plaque informing passersby of its amazing provenance.
