This was once a covered market easy to find just off of Gracecurch street. Now it is lined with expensive designer shops, some restaurants and a few bars. It is very nice to see, with the ornate facades and topped with a lovely glass ceiling....More

While this place is of course famous for being a genuine Harry-Potter-location, it fortunately is not as crowded as platform 9 3/4. It looks nice and surely one can take a few nice pictures there, but that's that. The shops are utterly expensive and no...More

Visited at the weekend and like plenty places in the square mile it was closed. Ornate old market used in Harry Potter films but still worth seeing even if not busy.

Narrow covered street with a few counter service restaurants as a few other smaller restaurants with limited menus. If you work in an office building nearby I can see why it's convenient. But it should not be a place any guidebook recommends visiting. Skip it.

At first, I can't find this place. Not that big as I expected. Have some eateries. Didn't know that this is Harry Potter's filming site. Good place for photography too.
