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.
