Leadenhall Market Tours and Activities

star-5
4 Reviews
Leadenhall Market
Leadenhall Market itself dates back to the 14th century, while its City of London location has links to Roman Londinium (AD 43). The ornate structure of today was designed by Sir Horace Jones in 1881, though the market has since swapped meat trade for modern retail, and adopted an alter ego as Diagon Alley in the Harry Potter film series.
 
The Basics
Whether you’re a history buff, fitness fan, or Harry Potter enthusiast, you’ll enjoy a visit to Leadenhall Market. Historical tours usually include other ancient London landmarks as well as the market. Active sightseers can zip through the city on a bike tour. Harry Potter lovers can search for the entrance to Diagon Alley on foot, or cruise by in an iconic black cab.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Unlike nearby Smithfield Market, Leadenhall is no longer a wholesale market, and as of 2018, there are few independent stalls.
  • The market isn’t very big, so it’s worth combining your visit with other local landmarks.
  • Leadenhall Market’s main draw is its impressive architecture, so don’t forget your camera.
  • All public areas of the market are wheelchair accessible, though the main thoroughfare is gently cobbled.
 
How to Get There
Located in the historic center of London, the market is just a short walk from Bank and Monument underground stations, and about 10 minutes from Moorgate or Liverpool Street mainline stations.
 
When to Get There
Unlike the rest of the lively metropolis, the City of London itself goes very quiet during the weekend. If you’re looking for atmosphere, arrive on a weekday around lunchtime, when the market will be bustling with city workers.
 
Who was Sir Horace?
English architect Sir Horace Jones is best known for his design of Tower Bridge, as well as several City of London markets, including Smithfield. Jones’ architectural designs can still be explored today, providing unique insight into the city’s Victorian heritage.

Address: Gracechurch Street, London EC3V 1LR, England

Explore Ancient Alleyways in the Footsteps of Dickens Audio Tour by VoiceMap

Explore Ancient Alleyways in the Footsteps of Dickens Audio Tour by VoiceMap

On this walk we will see actual places that Dickens visited as well as places mentioned in his novels. We start at St Paul's Cathedral, which dominated London in Victorian times. It was near here that the young Dickens worked as a freelance reporter in Doctor’s Commons. He witnessed the old-fashioned and slightly ridiculous legal practice here which led to his contempt of the law, and his famous saying in Oliver twist ‘The law is a ass’. We then wend our way through ancient alleyways and churchyards, such as St Peter's, Cheapside, where the young Dickens first arrived in London. In ‘A Christmas Carol’ Ebenezer Scrooge sees the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come on the steps of the Royal Exchange. Nearby we discover the George and Vulture Inn where Mr Pickwick stayed just before his trial for Breach of Promise in ‘The Pickwick Papers’. The audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.

The price you see is the total cost (not per person). ........... THE Muggles tour of Harry Potter film locations. Half Day Private London Tour (4 hours): 9am - 12pm starts. Taxi tour and a small amount of walking. Lots of photo opps. .......... I’m a born and bred London guide who enjoys providing commentary and anecdotes about all our tour stops at London’s ‘Potterology’ film sites. Harry Potter may have been raised in very dull Little Whingeing, but very exciting central London is where you'll discover lots of the real film locations used in Harry Potter films. Close enough to one another to drive, this tour taxis from location to location so that you can see, stand next to and sometimes walk in the actual places where Muggles fear to tread. Walk diagonally through Diagon Alley, stand fractionally closer to Platform 9 ¾ or deposit yourself outside Gringotts Bank. All are featured on this tour of the real film locations. Everyone welcome, except for Deatheaters!
