Businesses on Fleet Street
Fleet Street has long been associated with the media and national press. The printing and publishing industry dominated the area beginning in the sixteenth century. The industry largely moved out of Fleet Street during the 1980s, although many of buildings that served as bases for national newspapers have been preserved as listed properties.
Fleet Street is now an important base for investment banking, including C. Hoare & Co and Child & Co. C. Hoare & Co is the oldest private bank in England and has been active on Fleet Street since 1672, while Child & Co was founded in 1580 and is one of the oldest banks in the United Kingdom. Accountants and accountancy firms also have a major presence on the street.
Fleet Street is also a base for legal professionals, including the law firm Freshfields. The Inns of Court and barristers' chambers are found along alleys and courtyards off Fleet Street. Other employers include numerous pubs, which have been popular destinations for journalists and lawyers for decades. The economy of Fleet Street continues to be enhanced through a number of projects and strategies.
Office Buildings on Fleet Street
Many of the former newspaper offices along Fleet Street have been converted into office spaces. They now serve as the London headquarters for several companies, including Goldman Sachs International. Goldman Sachs has its European headquarters at Peterborough Court and Mersey House, the former homes of the Daily Telegraph and the Liverpool Echo. The Peterborough Court estate includes Daniel House and was redesigned for Goldman Sachs in 1991 with approximately 370,526 square feet of office accommodation.
The Daily Express Building at 120 Fleet Street was designed in 1932 and is a Grade II listed building. An example of Art Deco architecture, the building was refurbished in 2000 and features a black façade with rounded corners in glass and vitrolite. Goldman Sachs is a major tenant in the 12-storey office block.

About Fleet Street
Fleet Street in the City of London, now a conservation area, has been a major route since Roman times. It has been a place of business since the Middle Ages, when businesses were first set up along the road. Fleet Street runs west to east, starting at Temple Bar and stretching to Ludgate Circus. The western terminus of Fleet Street marks the point where the River Fleet and the London Wall met. Monuments to important public figures are found along Fleet Street, including statues and memorials for Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots, and Edgar Wallace, Lord Northcliffe.
Fleet Street saw its first publishing works around 1500. The first issue of the Daily Courant was published in 1702, and eventually several newspapers based their operations in the area. The Daily Telegraph, The Daily Express, The Sun, The Times, and other publications were produced on Fleet Street. In 1986, News International moved its operations to Wapping in East London.
The decision began the decline of newspaper publishing on Fleet Street. The last news outlet to leave the area was Reuters in 2005. A small number of publishers have remained on Fleet Street, including D.C. Thomson & Co, Metro International and the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association. The Associated Press and the British Association of Journalists also have offices on Fleet Street.
