Thames Street, divided into Lower and Upper Thames Street, is a road
in the City of London, the historic and financial centre of London.
It forms part of the busy A3211 route (prior to being rebuilt as a
major thoroughfare in the late 1960s, it was the B132) from Tower Hill
to Westminster. The
O city city, I can sometimes hear Beside a public bar in Lower Thames Street, The pleasant whining of a mandoline And a clatter and a chatter from within Where fishmen lounge at noon: where the walls Of Magnus Martyr hold Inexplicable splendor of Ionian white and gold.
At 101 Lower Thames Street, remains of a Roman bath were excavated.
They are preserved in the cellar of the modern building on the site.
Little evidence of the street's history remains, in a large part due
to the Blitz and post-War redevelopment, and it now contains many
office buildings, including the headquarters of the Daily Express
