Bouverie Street is a street in the City of London, off Fleet Street, which once was the home of some of Britain's most widely circulated newspapers as well as the Whitefriars Priory.

The offices of the News Chronicle,[1] a British daily paper, were based there until it ceased publication on 17 October 1960 after being absorbed into the Daily Mail. The News of the World had its offices at No. 30 until the paper's closure in 2011; its sister paper The Sun is still based there. It was also home to the offices of Punch magazine until the 1990s and for some decades of Lutterworth Press, one of Britain's oldest independent publishers celebrated for Boy's Own Paper and its sister Girl's Own Paper.

The street's name comes from the landlords of the area, the Pleydell-Bouveries, Earls of Radnor.[2]
