I had not been to Leadenhall Market since my father would now and then take me to the city as a kid and we would buy lobsters there, being able to choose them in the fishmongers basement. It seems times have very much changed and...More

I found this place very interesting, shopping and dining experience in the heart of Lond. Buildings with really beautiful Victorian architecture. I would recommend this place for evenings for dinner or a a drink. Weekends are sad there, the place is closed or empty.

We thought that coming on a Saturday afternoon would give us the opportunity to fully experience the market. Not so much. Most things were closed with the exception of a few restaurants, so I'm guessing that it the market really caters to businesses that are...More

I'm a Harry Potter fan, and so I thought this place was super cool. Leadenhall Market is in the business district of London and was used as Diagon Alley in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. The entrance to wizard's pub, the Leaky Cauldron, is...More

Yes, we went here only because of Harry Potter. Market is beautiful, but we didn't expect huge groups of people standing everywhere. Still a great experience, it was nice to see a place where this wonderful story was shot.

A market has been here since Roman times, alongside a Roman temple, but the buying, selling and trading now goes on in the futuristic buildings near by. The workers and tourists alike are drawn to socialise there, just as they would have done 2 millennia...More

Small nice designed Market! Some of famous Harry Potter scenes was taken here. It may worth a visit if you pass by, not to travel specifically for it. London has a huge offer for these landmarks as well.

Really nice market! Seems like a hidden treasure will be back again when I next visit London. The main pub in the market is a must

On a very warm (for February) lunchtime, this place was buzzing with City workers enjoying their lunch. The architecture in here is in contrast to the modern buildings adjacent to it and takes you back well over a 100 years.

its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile

“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
