Leadenhall Market

Shop for fresh produce, fine cheeses, flowers and many other items in one of the oldest covered markets in London.

Leadenhall Market is an ornate covered market with beautifully preserved Victorian architecture. Admire the decorative roof design as you walk through one of the city’s oldest markets. Buy flowers, meat and cheese or share a drink with local city workers in one of its busy pubs.

Learn about the history of this pretty market. Although its origins date back to the 14th century, the present structure is from the late 19th century and was designed by English architect Sir Horace Jones. Among the design highlights of the marketplace is the decorative green, maroon and cream arched roof and the cobbled floors.

If the market looks familiar, that may be because you’ve seen it before on the big screen. Leadenhall Market was used as Diagon Alley in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

Browse stores selling accessories for women and men, quality wines and traditional jewelry. Enjoy international cuisine prepared by award-winning chefs in Leadenhall Market’s restaurants and choose from the more than 200 cheeses on offer in the market’s specialty cheese store. The market also contains hidden-away wine bars, old-fashioned pubs and cafés serving breakfast, brunch and lunch.

Special events happen at the market throughout the year. Come during February to see the Leadenhall Market Pancake Race, during which workers from the nearby banks, law and accountancy firms race around the market while attempting to flip a pancake. The market looks particular attractive at Christmas when festive lights and décor add to the atmosphere.

Consider combining a trip here with a visit to nearby Tower Bridge and the Tower of London, which are less than 15 minutes away on foot. Marvel at the crown jewels in the tower and capture photos of the iconic 19th-century bridge, a well-known symbol of the city.

Find Leadenhall Market in the City of London, the capital’s historic and financial center. To get here, ride the Tube to Bank or Monument stations and walk to the market in less than 10 minutes. Fenchurch Street railway station is also less than 10 minutes’ away on foot. The best time to visit is between Monday and Friday as most of the shops close at the weekends.
