Rather interesting Fleet Street facts
Did you know that Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese pub, just off Fleet Street, was the first new building to open in London after the Great Fire ? Planning priorities getting it right for once. Its roots as a hostelry go back to at least the 13th century, though then as a monastic guest house rather than an inn. The Cheese has a plaque marking where Dr Johnson and other literary figures are said to have sat.
