Wood Street is a street in the City of London.

It originates in the south at Cheapside, crosses Gresham Street as it runs northbound, and crosses London Wall. The northernmost end runs alongside The Postern, part of the Barbican estate, stopping at Andrewes House. It today lies in the wards of Bassishaw (north of Gresham Street) and Cheap (south of Gresham Street).

Wood Street is the location of the headquarters of the City of London Police, at its corner with Love Lane. There is a tower on a traffic island in the middle of the street, which is all that remains of the church of St Alban, Wood Street.

Other notable buildings include 88 Wood Street, and the hall of the Worshipful Company of Pewterers on nearby Oat Lane.
