Venue says Dating back to the 14th Century, Leadenhall Market is a unique, boutique shopping and dining destination in the heart of the City of London.

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’.

I can't believe that I have only just discovered this London gem. Dating back to the 14th Century, visitors are transported into another world as soon as you get to the entrance. It has a very chic-European feel to it, with a selection of food an wine options available, coupled with Pizza Express and Grabthai. Even if you don't eat here (like we didn't), it's worth meandering through it. I actually can't wait to go back during Christmas time when I imagine it'll be decked out in magical wintery Christmas lights.

Stumbled on this magical market after going to the Sky Garden. Small but lovely. Apparently was inspiration for Harry Potter.

We just popped by to take a look as we accidentally came across it whilst walking to a tube station. It is adorable. Would highly recommend and will make you feel completely festive.
