Went when it was empty one Saturday. Must have been around 4pm so all stalls gone? Eerie! But nice to see actually and take a pic or two.more
Leadenhall market is a beautiful old outside market with many bars and restaurants. The atmosphere is magical there because of the architecture however it gets full of business people that have afterwork drinks and quite loud. Not necessarily the best tourist location but good for a drink after workmore
We went there (five days ago) because I'd read about the beautiful architecture, and indeed it's really lovely. It's a Victorian shopping arcade and it's been beautifully restored. Admittedly we had no interest in eating or drinking there, but it was certainly worth going there just to see it.more
I've only been to Leadenhall Market a couple of times, and always just to pubs. It's a cool tourist attraction, as it was featured in one of the Harry Potter movies as Diagon Alley. But it's generally full of insurance guys in suits drinking during or after the work day as they emerge from the Lloyd's building. I would love to go back during the day sometime and check out the other shops...more
What can I say - Harry Potter!
That aside this is a lovely venue to visit. It is beautifully restored and houses several shop. The highlight is however the pubs and restaurants! A must visit when you are in the mood for an authentic experience that is very social.more
