Leadenhall Market Tours

star-5
4 Reviews
Leadenhall Market
Leadenhall Market itself dates back to the 14th century, while its City of London location has links to Roman Londinium (AD 43). The ornate structure of today was designed by Sir Horace Jones in 1881, though the market has since swapped meat trade for modern retail, and adopted an alter ego as Diagon Alley in the Harry Potter film series.
 
The Basics
Whether you’re a history buff, fitness fan, or Harry Potter enthusiast, you’ll enjoy a visit to Leadenhall Market. Historical tours usually include other ancient London landmarks as well as the market. Active sightseers can zip through the city on a bike tour. Harry Potter lovers can search for the entrance to Diagon Alley on foot, or cruise by in an iconic black cab.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Unlike nearby Smithfield Market, Leadenhall is no longer a wholesale market, and as of 2018, there are few independent stalls.
  • The market isn’t very big, so it’s worth combining your visit with other local landmarks.
  • Leadenhall Market’s main draw is its impressive architecture, so don’t forget your camera.
  • All public areas of the market are wheelchair accessible, though the main thoroughfare is gently cobbled.
 
How to Get There
Located in the historic center of London, the market is just a short walk from Bank and Monument underground stations, and about 10 minutes from Moorgate or Liverpool Street mainline stations.
 
When to Get There
Unlike the rest of the lively metropolis, the City of London itself goes very quiet during the weekend. If you’re looking for atmosphere, arrive on a weekday around lunchtime, when the market will be bustling with city workers.
 
Who was Sir Horace?
English architect Sir Horace Jones is best known for his design of Tower Bridge, as well as several City of London markets, including Smithfield. Jones’ architectural designs can still be explored today, providing unique insight into the city’s Victorian heritage.

Address: Gracechurch Street, London EC3V 1LR, England
