Fleet Street vers 1890 (photo de James Valentine)

Fleet Street est une rue de Londres se trouvant sur la rive gauche de la Tamise tout étant parallèle au fleuve, dans le prolongement du Strand.

Elle est historiquement l'axe qui rejoint la Cité de Londres à celle de Westminster dont la limite symbolique est marqué le monument de Temple Bar.

Le nom de cette artère vient de la Fleet, un affluent de la Tamise qui s'écoulait du nord au sud au niveau de Ludgate Circus et qui est aujourd'hui recouvert.

Les principaux journaux anglais ont longtemps eu leur siège dans cette rue. Ils ont pour la plupart déménagé vers Canary Wharf mais on désigne encore parfois la presse britannique par l'expression Fleet Street.

L'entrée principale de le Cour royale de Justice, se situe également sur Fleet Street au niveau de Temple Bar.
