Every part of Leadenhall Market is dripping with history. The building and cobbled streets predate Victorian times and the current construction and restoration works by the Museum of London on the edge of the market (21 Lime Street) are escavating Roman ruins. Harry Potter was...More

Not so great as I had imagined. And all shops closed on a saturday morning. Nevertheless surprising in the heart of the City. It is better to go there on a weekday I guess?

every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
