6. london baby..!

06 Aug

London’s _____ Street, named after the river ______ which flows at one end of the street, had many legal offices and courts surrounding it in the

 

late 15th century. From 1500s onwards, several publishing and printing shops began locating themselves on _____ Street to serve the legal offices in its neighbourhood. From 1702, when London’s first daily newspaper The Daily Courant set up its office there, the street became the hub of the news industry of Britain. Almost all major news companies had their presence on _____ Street. Though the news industry has moved away from _____ Street, even today, the street is called the spiritual home of British journalism. There is a tradition that every British journalist gets married in the Christopher Wrens Church on _____ Street. Give me the name of this street.
