St. Bride's Church Open new window
St Bride’s, a beautiful oasis in the heart of a busy parish. Fleet Street has traditionally been the home of printing and newspaper publishing ever since Wynkyn de Worde set up his printing press in the churchyard in AD. Even though the newspaper industry is now scattered across London, St Bride’s still retains its role as the Cathedral of the Printed Word and the Spiritual meeting-point for journalists from all over the world. As you walk around the church you will see many reminders of the long association with journalism and printing in the inscriptions on the stalls and panelling. (Added 20-Jan-2009)
