About the Leadenhall Market

A richly decorated former meat/poultry market that's been on this site for over 700 years.

The current building is Victorian and a classic of the style, and while the market has left, the shops are now filled with cafes, food, drink and up-market retailers.

The market streets are open all the time to wander around, although naturally, the shops are open normal hours.

IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
