This enclosed market of passageways under Victorian glass dome roofing is a great example of the architecture in the 1800’s. With a variety of restaurants, shops and stalls, you can eat, drink and shop in this bustling area.

Leadenhall Market is one of the few areas in the "City of London" that is retaining its appearance, although it's soul is changing as the traditional shops and stalls slowly disappear. The Lamb is still there and some good restaurants, it remains worth a visit...More

From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
