Quaint high brow shops

This is an ornately decorated arcade in the city which has some good pubs by to visit and lots of seating by eateries to marvel at the design. My only gripe is that similar spaces in Antwerp, Madrid and Paris have independent, varied shops and restaurants to visit. There are a few but unfortunately Pizza Express, La Tasca, Leon and...

I came across Leadenhall Market when looking for somewhere different to visit on a recent visit to London. We were eating at The London Steakhouse & with another visit planned to The Sky Garden so the location of Leadenhall Market is perfect. The building/market dates back to Victorian times & is simply stunning. It is lovely to see an area... More

I visited this place with my sister to experience "Diagon Alley" from Harry Potter. It really is quite beautiful but not too much to do here.

Many shops clustered in an outdoor area. Lovely space for a large range of shops, bars, and restaurants. A nice area to visit and browse. A nice wine bar, a good seafood restaurant, and a good variety of shops. Recommended.

It dates from 14th century with nice architecture mostly in red and gold colour. It has a beautiful Christmas decoration in festive season.

On a short visit to London we came across this place while in the city. It's an amazing throw back to the Victorian days with its beautiful lights, pillars and colours. You would never believe you were in the middle of the capital city of the UK. Apparently, it was used in Harry Potter films although I have no idea,... More

I have only ever visited the market to get lunch as I work in the area. It is an attraction for those visiting the city or new to the area. Lots of shops and restaurants!

Worked close to this wonderful space for many years and always enjoyed spending time there. This visit was no exception. The architecture and decoration is breath taking and there's a unique atmosphere pretty much any time of the day. It's great when it's full of office workers shopping, eating at one of the restaurants or enjoying a drink at its... More

Staying in City of London

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.
