Ghosts of Fleet Street

An immersive guided tour of Fleet Street tracing the rise and demise of the world’s leading mass media in London’s red-light district.

As Lord Justice Leveson loads his rifle with shiny gold bullets and points it at the head of the press, discover how Britain's unique press freedoms came about on this mesmerising tour of Fleet Street.

Led by an Oxford-educated expert in media history, Dr Matthew Green and with actors and musicians hidden along the route this is an enlightening and controversial walk 'n talk which will generate a tinge of nostalgia for the lost world of Fleet Street and its revolutionary printing presses.

As featured in the Guardian, Telegraph and Monocle. Includes free copies of lurid seventeenth-century pamphlets and some early editions of the Daily Mail and Sunday Times.
