The story of the demonic barber of Fleet Street, Sweeney Todd, has been around since 1846,
when it was a part of a penny dreadful titled The String of Pearls, though a number of urban legends served as
the prototype for the character (including one briefly mentioned in Martin Chuzzlewit). Historically,
Todd’s barber shop was said to be connected Mrs. Lovett’s pie shop,
No. 186 Fleet Street, and the shop’s sign in the 2007 Oscar-winning movie Sweeney Todd shows that very number.
Today, 186 Fleet Street is the home of Dundee Courier’s print shop, and St. Dunstan’s Church stands next door.
The gruesome site itself, in all it's Victorian glory ( or should that be gory?)
Sweeney Todd's window is on the right hand side above the wheelie bin.
Imagine what the dastardly barber would have done with wheelie bins!
The courtyard has very deep cellars too and you can look down into them through huge iron grids.
Very grim, like some deep medieval dungeon prison. sign our guest book : thanks to locals and tourists droping change in statue we will add it to our hamper fund
