A small crossroad of streets lined up on both sides by wines shops, eateries, pubs & stores. The signboards are all in red & gold colour. A very different look. You must visit this street at night to see it when the lights are on.Located close to Tube stations of Tower Hill, Liverpool & bank. Vehicles are not allowed inside... More

I just stopped by there to see the architecture and wasn't disappointed. Not much of interest to me but I imagine when built it was bursting with life.

We visited on a Saturday so everywhere was closed. This however wasn't a bad thing as the place itself is beautiful and many a great photo of the empty market was taken.

This is a must, so beautiful, weird how it's so old and surrounded by modern tower blocks. full of lots of nice shops and places to eat and a couple of bars. Closed on Sunday's but still nice to have a walk around.

Beautiful covered market where you can have a reasonably priced meal, pub-style drinks or visit numerous retail shops. Building offers great atmosphere and photo opportunities. Short walk from London Bridge. Underground and taxi access as well.

I had a short trip to the market, which is exquisite in its architecture & design. A lovely atmosphere has been created there. It is very quaint & a must for Harry Potter devotees :)

This is my favourite place in the City and I always make a stop here when I am around. The City is changing day after day, but when I step in here I feel like I am transported back in time. I like the little shops, the pubs, the iron and glass structure itself. I even visit it when the... More

This place is definitely worth a visit, it is like going back in time. We just came across it and it was really buzzy on an early Friday night. We stopped at the cheese and port place and enjoyed some delicious cheese and bread whilst enjoying the surroundings. Ended up staying a lot longer than anticipated after a few glasses... More

Close to Liverpool Street Station lies this architectural gem with vaulted, glass ceilings, red and gold ironwork, cobbles underfoot and individual shops and restaurants. Leadenhall Market feels like stepping back to Dickensian London with 21 century amenities. Look up at the stonework entrance with the market's name embossed. Take a detour to Waterstones bookshop, located just before the main entrance,... More

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
