The place has the look of an old Victorian style market but was actually built in 1990. It's cute, but small and not much of a market. A few expensive shops and pubs. We took a few pictures because we had heard it was in...More

A great part of London that has kept the architecture of the Victorian Market. It is actually now changed to a Upmarket eating area and retained little of the products of the original Market.

I thought the market would be bigger and more of a market. It was just a bunch of (expensive) restaurants and pubs. It looks great though, with beautiful looking buildings and ceiling.

Visited here as we were too early for our appointment at the nearby SkyGarden - glad we did! A wonderful Victorian building with ornate shop fronts. Mainly eating and drinking establishments but also other retail stores.

Early Saturday afternoon, not much going on, most shops and coffee shops are closed, in the market and in side streets.

Do not miss it if you are a fan of Harry Potter. The building is like a hidden gem located in the financial area of London. If you are happened to go for skygarden or borough market, check it out as they are quite close.

Daughter heard the JK Rowling based Diagon Alley on Leadenhall, so off we trekked. You can see why it's the inspiration - covered alley of quaint shops. Very Victorian, unique and a real range of items to buy.

I came through today and the scaffolding at the main entrance does spoil things a bit but this is still a great place to spend a few minutes to admire the architecture and the lunchtime atmosphere.

Very popular with the punters attending the pubs in the market after work and at lunch time. There were a few other specialist shops but the main attraction for me was the age of the building. Very old world London and if you're into quaint...More

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

Not exactly but it isn't open on a Sunday, at least the shops and restaurants aren't but you can still walk through it.
