Working in Strand and Fleet St
We are pleased to bring you our second LentaSpace Location Guide, designed to give you a feel for what it’s like to working in Strand and Fleet St. We have included everything essential – how long it will take you travel to work, where to stop for coffee enroute, where to go for the best street food at lunch, where to buy that last minute birthday present and where to gather with your work mates for post work drinks.
Transport links are amazing in the Strand area with the three mainline stations, Waterloo, Blackfriars and Charing Cross – all within 15 minutes walk – enabling you to commute direct from Maidstone, Guildford or Winchester.
The Stations are also well serviced by Transport for London – you can arrive by tube via the Northern line plus District, Circle, Bakerloo and Jubilee.
Multiple bus routes serve Strand and Fleet St from both east and west, including the 1, 26, 59 and 76.
Just a few minutes’ walk from Covent Garden and its many theatres, this is a great place to work if you like the arts. The Sir John Soanes Museum, 13 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, showcases the great architect’s collections in his former home. Also, the beautiful Somerset House on Strand with its ever changing exhibitions, summer concerts and ice rink at Christmas always has something to offer.
Without doubt, head to Covent Garden for any shopping needs during your lunch break. Our favourite places to pick up unique gifts include chocolates from Venchi, cashmere from Brora and jewellery from Alkemistry.

Take your coffee on the go from Soho Coffee House, 215 Strand, and you can be assured that its 100% organic and Fairtrade. All food is also freshly made on the premises.
Places for lunch
All of the usual options you’d expect for a quick or takeaway lunch are on offer, such as Leon, Benugo, Pret a Manger and Starbucks.
If you want something a little different try Floral Street Coffee House, with outdoor seating and delicious options like peaches and burrata with balsamic on toast.
Post work drinks
The history of Fleet Street and it’s links to the newspaper industry means that it is home to some incredible original pubs. We can’t not mention Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, 145 Fleet St rebuilt in 1666 after the Great Fire of London and frequented by Charles Dickens and Mark Twain.
If a glass of wine is more your thing try Daly’s Wine Bar at 210 Strand, which offers both a serious wine list and food to soak it up.
We hope that this has given you some great ideas but do visit the great local knowledge website for more suggestions.
