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.

The architecture of this building is very beautiful. There is not much to do at Leadenhall market itself. Make the visit worthwhile by visiting Sky Garden & Monument as they are close by. Harry Porter fans would love it too.

Leadenhall Market was built in 1881 and the architecture is magnificent. It is not far from the Monument to the Great Fire of London and it has links to the Harry Potter series and is where the Diagon Alley scenes were filmed. There are an...More
