Billingsgate Market
Billingsgate Market

Billingsgate moved to Docklands in the 1980s after 600 years in the City but continues to be your best bet for fresh fish and seafood. Get here early – though not as as early as the restaurateurs and fishmongers who arrive around 3am – and relish the atmosphere while making your purchases. Watch out for the porters, who lug crates of fish around all day and bruise ankles with their heavy wooden trolleys, and also the Billingsgate seal, fat on scraps, which lives in the neighbouring dock. There’s a training school to help you get your head around all aspects of seafood.

how can you NOT love this place??

fresh fish,lobster,crabs and prawns all in one location at the most reasonable prices known to man!!! 

you tell me where else in london town you can find fresh ALIVE lobster going for 2 for £10??? exactly!! 

highly recommend it but they open and close early as its fresh catch of the day so from 5-7am last time I checked. 

only thing I wold say is to not wear your best shoes as the floor is awash with fishy ice and water!! so wellies it has to be! :)
