Sadly nothing was open, despite it being a bank holiday. However, this probably worked out well as we could look at the lovely architecture without being pushed and shoved. Seeing all the hooks outside , what I assume we’re old butchers shops. Small place but...More

Even though Google says this market is open 24 hours, the stores are not. Today, on a Sunday, most stores were closed for the exception of a bar/restaurant. The market is always open to walk through. Covered, with many stores and architecturally, beautiful.

Old covered market which dates back hundred of years. Visited it due to a personal connection and while I enjoyed it I definitely don’t think I went at the right time of day. Nothing seems to happen on a weekday much before 11am so the...More

Wandered through here on our way to Sky Garden. Love the old facades and the beautiful ceiling on the covered walkway. Particularly loved walking past the Harry Potter tour and earwigging how the film crew created the scene the guide was talking about.

Strange to report but the best time to come here is on Sunday when it's closed, if you want to see the building at it's best that is. Beautiful glazed roof, vintage shop fronts and the street running through.

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

I went purely to find the opticians shop front which was used in the film Harry Potter and The Philosophers Stone as the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron (which I found!). But it's a fabulous place with a mesmerising ceiling and great for photos. Well...More
