    Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese in Fleet Street has stood on the same spot for centuries. The historic pub had to be rebuilt after the Great Fire of London in 1666. Its dark, gloomy interior has hosted many famous figures including, reputedly, Charles Dickens, Dr Samuel Johnson and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
