There are numerous attractions in London that, whilst not as famous as some, make a great day out for tourists and locals alike
One such place is the Leadenhall Market, one of the city’s oldest and most traditional marketplaces, bang-slap in the middle of London. Dating as far back as 1881, the market is authentically Victorian in terms of its style, layout and charm.
With shops, restaurants and vendors selling cheese, gourmet foods and flowers, the market is fairly small, but it remains an important commercial centre. The market was also the setting for some of the Diagon Alley scenes in the first of the Harry Potter films.
The area, a popular spot for an after-work drink and something to eat, has been attracting workers from the City—London’s nearby financial district—since the nineteenth century.
The market is open from Monday to Friday, 11am – 4pm, and is located on the corner of Gracechurch Street with Lime Street (EC3V 1LT), close to Bank and Monument stations (Underground).
