Leadenhall Market, London
Leadenhall Market dates back to the 14th century and is situated in what was the centre of Roman London. Originally a meat, poultry and game market, it is now home to boutique shops, restaurants and bars serving the hungry and thirsty from neighbouring city offices.
Today the market is surrounded by the ever growing high rise buildings of the City of London. Like many parts of London it is a great place to experience the contrasting architecture of old and new.
Like the space-age inside-out style of the Lloyds building, for example, that sits adjacent to the market like some kind of alien occupation.
Just a short walk from Monument or Bank tube and just up from the other gem in this part of town: St Dunstan’s Garden
