Leadenhall market is very cool, just a short walk from Liverpool Street and located near The Gherkin the deco of the shops makes you feel like you've stepped back in time. There is an alleyway that has books hanging off the ceilings which looks amazing. You have some nice restaurants, bars and chained food places in there too - plenty... More

After visiting the Sky Garden of the Walkie Talkie, a very short walk away is the Leadenhall Market. A very old Market from the 15th century that has been refurbished recently, very beautiful. The arcades are gorgeous, with cobblestone streets, nice food shops, restaurants and even an art installation with books in one of the market alleys. We had lunch... More

It is really worth visiting Leadenhall Market just to look at the beautiful Victorian architecture that has been so well maintained. There are also plenty of places to eat and drink, people watch or shop. A lot of the shops are high end and quite expensive but it is still fun to window shop. Because the market is close to...

Leadenhall market is a gorgeously restored Victorian market. It was fun to see the place where several scenes from the Harry Potter movies were filmed.

Even if you're not a Harry Potter fan, I'm sure you can appreciate the wonderful ambiance of this Victorian market, or gallery as it would be called if in Paris. We enjoyed a cappuccino in a café whilst relaxing and soaking in the atmosphere before venturing out to the other attractions and tourist magnets.

Leadenhall Market is a beautifully maintained Victorian arcade of boutique shops. There has been a market on this site since the 14th Century. Even before then this was a meeting place. Beneath your feet are the remains of London's Roman Forum, a tiny piece of which can be seen in the basement of Nicholson & Griffin barbers at 90 Gracechurch... More

I was very impressed with how the market has been conserved and converted. It's especially nice a night when all lit up and at this time of year with a Christmas tree it's very festive. Nice selection of pubs and restaurants so definitely worth a try if visiting the area.

I love the hustle and bustle of this place, situated in the heart of the city of London. I usually stop for a pint and watch the financial whiskies pouncing about in their sharp suits...maybe I'm a bit odd but I enjoy the vibe of the place and the historic architecture is beautiful.

Paid a visit at the weekend back to this market where I used to hang out regularly when I worked in the area. Unfortunately a lot of the old traditional market stalls and individual shops/restaurants have been replaced by high street chains. But the atmosphere and visuals have been retained, and the traditional pubs are still there, heaving on a... More
