Leadenhall Market is a Victorian gem situated in central London (nearest tube station: Monument), restored in 1991 enhancing its architectural character and detail and changing completely the colours of the building, originally green, maroon and cream.

Designed in 1881 by Sir Horace Jones (architect of Old Billingsgate and Smithfield Markets), it still holds the original wrought iron and glass structure.


It is known in the recent days to be the location where some of the exterior Diagon Alley scenes were filmed in the Harry Potter film and it is believed that the dragons installed at the corners along of the whole structure have been the inspiration for the creation of the bizarre fantasy creatures in the movies.

The market is open on weekdays between 10 am and 6 pm selling mainly, cheese, meat, delicatessen, old games and flowers.
