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.

All shops are closed during weekends, what a pity. Although very beautiful, it is completely empty, and nothing to do when the shops are closed..

I'd never heard of Leadenhall Market, and even my London-based friends had never visited. But the photo I saw reminded me of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan, and so I took a chance and navigated myself there from the Bank tube stop. It was well worth the effort. The market is small, but eh businesses in it are... More

This ancient market was rebuilt beautifully by the Victorians. It is wonderful having upmarket shops, all sorts of restaurants and pubs and even still has a butchers and cheese shop. I took my Aussie relatives here and they were suitably wowed. This isn't something to miss.

If you get tired of the spikeyness of the high tech buildings and the world of banking around Bank & the City of London, Lloyds, the Gerkin etc. why not slope off into this haven of shops, food, winebars and cosiness. After a short respite, you can relaunch yourself into that rather more barron landscape anew and even start to... More

A market has been there on this site since the 15th century. The current buildings date from late 19th century. Leadenhall Market is a splendid structure with beautiful shop fronts. When I visited, there was not much of a market, only some stalls with paintings and stuff. However, the buildings of Leadenhall Market are occupied by eateries, (I spotted the... More

Well worth a visit - you can spend as much or as little time here as you care to do so and plenty of shops and places to eat. A real "soak yourself in London city" experience dining out at lunch time. Love love love it!

This is one awesome place to walk around. Shopping & eating all under one roof. Leadenhall has been around since at least the 13th century, although the current buildings are Victorian. We found it completely by chance wandering down Gracechurch Street. We relaxed with a glass of wine, however I can't remember the name of the pub/cafe. At the time... More

Leadenhall Market is a step back in time it's a lovely cast iron built structure painted red and silver the shops are just as they would have looked in Dickens day. It is very quiet at the week end because the financial area is closed, I love the week end as you can see how quiet it is and just... More
