Leadenhall Street EC3V 1LT | City of London, Central London
Shops, pubs and restaurants have individual opening and closing hours
The area has been a market since the 1300s and luckily it was not severely damaged during the Great Fire of 1666. But the modern iron and glass structure, the one which can be appreciated today, dates from 1881 and is a protected building. It is easy to know why. Walking along the narrow streets of the City of London, suddenly you see this enormous reddish structure with nice shops and restaurants, full of design details and an architecture masterpiece. Around 5pm, when the area is filled with bankers and stock brokers having their pints before heading home is the liveliest. You can combine your visit here to the London Sky Garden, a few blocks away.
