Prince Henry's Room is situated on the first floor at the front of No. 17 Fleet Street, London. The house is one of the few surviving buildings in the City of London dating from before the Great Fire of London in 1666. It is a Grade II Listed Building. The building was a Tavern called the Prince's Arms from 1610 until being renamed in the mid-17th Century to the Fountain Inn. Currently, the building is owned and maintained by the City of London Corporation and is only viewable when special events are held there. The City of London Corporation has recently completed a consultation with interested parties regarding the room's usage. I think it should be reopened as the Fountain Inn, or the Prince's Arms!…

I have passed this building on many occasions when visiting London and often wondered what it was. Very disappointing to note that it is closed to the public but can be viewed from outside. It is one of the few buildings to survive the fire of London.

Had an interesting visit here some years ago when there was an exhibition on Samuel Pepys, so was very sorry to see that it has been made into offices with no public access. It is a nice building from the outside and a rarity in London being pre Great Fire.

I have known about prince Henrys Room, which is in the Fleet St at the start of Inner Temple for many many years, and often had it on my list to see when in London. It took a couple of attempts to find and often I simply ran out of time to make a visit. The site features in travel press and this visit to London I had a copy of an article that gave details of exactly where and where to go and where to go afterwards for a refreshment. Presently in London for a couple of weeks and saw from the bus going to St Pauls a small sign saying "Prince Henry Room" so made a special trip the next day to see. Went in the doorway and got up the first two steps of the stairs to the first floor, the room overlooks the busy Fleet St, a nice lady asked "are you trying to get to Prince Henry room because its been closed for nine years". Unbelievable…

Sorry, but this venue is closed to the public and now seems to be an office. Went July 2015 and was disappointed. You can still photograph the upper window from the opposite side of the road.
