So, I know London is expensive. We wanted to see leadenhall market, and believe me it is beautiful! I only wish we didn't go there starving. We ate lunch at a butcher shop with seating right in the aisles of the market. For 3 burgers and 1 grilled chicken breast, all with fries, the bill was over $100.00 USD. That... More

This is the most elegant market I have ever been to and is well worth the visit if you are a fan of Harry Potter. It looks just like a little bit of Diagon Alley.

We took a coach tour of London and they pointed out Leadenhall Market as the location of part of the filming in Harry Potter. Of course, the students wanted to go check it out. We went at lunch time and the place was busy with all the business men and women grabbing lunch and an ale. There was a band... More

Went here because I am one of Harry Potter fans :) The place were really noisy, lots of people around especially in lunch time. The building is really beautiful, Victorian style. Worth a visit. Nearest tube station: Monument.

The bars here and cheese shops and butchers and restaurants all very photogenic, we had a great drink here and were amazed at the level of noise. My visitors think that we English are quiet and reserved, shows you what reading books does for you, I explained that the country existed at something bordering on a low level riot. Good... More

Rotarians toured the Square Mile with Tour Guide Kate Tucker from London Walks on 18th May 2014. One of the sites covered in this tour was Leadenhall Market. Though this has become more of a bohemian shopping arcade, unlike it past when it was a food market, it remains a good site to visit. Pay particular attention to the Roman... More

I did some research on Harry Potter movie site. It was one of the most "photogenic" building! Love it.

Thoroughly enjoyed walking through Leadenhall Market recently. Lovely architecture, lively, buzzy restaurants and pubs - all well frequented. Small interesting shops to peruse. A little piece of history amongst the modern architecture/skyscrapers in the vicinity. We loved it and walked through a second time later that day. It seems to provide an excellent 'watering hole' for the City at the... More

What a gem in the heart of the City of London. Superb Victorian architecture, beautifully maintained and decorated shop fronts and a good range of bespoke shops and eateries. A true feast for the eyes. Well worth seeking out if you are in the vicinity, particularly if you are a photographer who likes photographing stunning Victorian buildings. Leadenhall Market would...

The marriage of lead/steel, glass and brick is a good one and boosts interesting views. Expect a very creative architecture in a businesss setting only a few steps from the ols maket area that reminds one of Italy or Spain.
