The atmospheric Leadenhall Market was constructed in 1881 by Horace Jones (who also built the market at Smithfield). The vaulted roof was restored to its original Victorian finery in 1991 and City workers come here in droves to lunch at the pubs, cafés and restaurants, including the historic Lamb Tavern. Fantasy fans may recognize the market as Diagon Alley in the film ‘Harry Potter & the Philosopher’s Stone’.
Visitors come to indulge in retail therapy, enjoy some of the best food and drink experiences on offer in the capital, or simply to enjoy the stunning architecture and learn about the market’s fascinating history.
Over the centuries Leadenhall has been an important backdrop to London’s evolution as a world class city - it has survived the Great Fire of London and the Blitz and even doubled as Diagon Alley for the world’s most famous young wizard, Harry Potter!
