Leadenhall Market is an old Victorian food-hall dating back to medieval times. Its iron and glass exterior is dimly lit inside, and looks for all the world like a slice of Dickens.

It now contains a fine set of restaurants and a selection of fish, meat, cheese and poultry stores… with wine and chocolate shops if you’re feeling naughty.

  • SarahCroft – “What a beuatiful place to shop. It is hard to describe it in a way that will do it justice. When you walk inside it is like being transported back in time, with beautiful fixtures and old fashioned shop fronts. I like to think of misty shop windows in charles dickens Novels, where little children rub away the condensation with the palms of the hands so they can see the sweets inside. If you can picture that, then you will have an inkling as to what leadenhall market is like. Go and visit!.”
  • queenie – “Not really a market, more like a very posh shopping arcade. I use it as a shortcut to the other side, because it is an absolutely beautiful place to walk though, it is like something in the movies. I think they filmed a bit of harry potter in there.”

> Craig’s review of Leadenhall Market – “This place reminds me of Christmas. Sometimes I come in here just for a look, just to have a stroll through somewhere in the early evening. The best time to see it is definitely when the sun has given up and gone home a few hours early; when you've been walking through the wet forever; when the clouds are sitting five feet off the floor, and when everyone is barging… continued”

If you enjoy this then try: Burlington Arcade (catch the tube from Bank to Burlington Arcade); The City (you can walk it in 6 mins) and Royal Exchange (you can walk it in 4 mins).
