Where is it?

Market in London where butchers go to work early.

And then eat English breakfast (butchers' plate) at a restaurant that has early hours. Thanks in advance. MF

Smithfield is currently undergoing refurbishment, and some of the fab old market has disappeared. Take the Central line from Shepherd's Bush to Chancery Lane and then the 8, 25 or 242 to City Thameslink station. Walk along Snow Hill and Smithfield Street to the market for a sense of what was there and to see the changes that have taken place.

You can do a tour of the market. I did it on my last trip and enjoyed it immensely. The down side is most butchers have closed up shop, but you get a much better understanding of the market and surrounds.

Ideally, you should go see the market, have breakky and then the walking tour which starts at 7am.

Thank you. This will be one of the highlights of the trip. Looking

forward also to having my two eggs on blood cake (black pudding) with

rashers. MF
