This is a cute photo stop as they filmed parts of Harry Potter here. There are some little restaurants and shops. It's not really farmers market.

Leadenhall Market is a very interesting place to visit. It is good for pubs, meals & some boutiques. It does not sell fruit & veg. There are some lovely cafes & restaurants which are not very expensive. Unfortunately a lot of the restaurants are closed...More

I found this by mistake after trying to get to the famous gherkin building. This is a great location with some trendy pubs, fashion, shops, restaurants and cafes. Really beautiful and well worth making a trip to check out this wonderful place.

Apart from the Harry Potter connection, this is a good place to visit. Feels like you're stepping back in time a little due to the look of the place and seeing people like shoe shiners.

One doesn't have to be a Harry Potter fan and look for the fictional Dragon Alley to enjoy this fab place. A market since the 14th century, and still continuing. The current splendid market design is from 1881. It is beautiful, and the juxtaposition with...More

Its cool to see where they filmed the first harry potter movie, when Hagrid takes harry to buy his wizarding stuff. But be aware there is nothing harry pottery about the places there, its all restaurants. It's cool but maybe not for little kids.

Lovely quaint market with interesting architecture. Pubs, shops and take away food venders. It's a little tricky to find even when you're looking for it on the local guide map and using your phone, so don't be afraid to ask someone where it is. The...More

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.

Marisa Leadenhall Market is an arcade of shops and restaurants and it never closes so you can certainly visit it and admire the architecture on a Saturday BUT as the shops within the market rely on local city workers most... More
