It's a beautiful Victorian arcade. But that's it. There's a few shops but mostly bars and restaurants, all nicely presented. Go there for lunch, don't go expecting a tourist attraction.

If you find yourself in the city during the week, do pop in for a look. The city is very busy with construction and incredibly noisy. Here you will see beautifully preserved Victorian architecture with many shops and pubs and places to eat. Also an historic market place. It's not huge but a nice surprise from the usual concrete. Closed... More

This was quite disappointing, but at least we were able to look inside the... More

Most of the market shops are closed at weekends as it is in the City financial area. Well worth a visit to see the great victorian structures

Lots of good food places and lots of bars made up Leadenhall market. It's definitely more suited for the business crowd than the visitor crowds.

This is another good outdoor market near the Sky Garden. Do go there is in The center of England and have a good meal or go for drinks in a nice atmosphere.

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.
