This isn’t necessarily somewhere to eat or shop ( although you can do both) but worth a wander and a look , with many old lanes and quirky buildings near by. Very beautiful decoration and although I’ve lived in London all my life, it took...More
It's interesting if you want to see this type of architecture, but it's really small and we walked through it in a minute. There's nothing else much to see but some pubs/cafes/stores. I wouldn't go out of my way to see this place. It's next...More
This place used to be a market back in the days of Queen Victoria. Now it really a upscale outdoor shopping mall as you'd expect situated next to the Bank of England and in the heart of the city. Mostly eateries and watering holes for...More

When doing the "Harry Potter walking tour", we discovered this beautiful market right in the middle of the City of London. Several restaurants, pubs and little stores make this "market" look like a movie set altough, this time everything is for real!!! Be ready to...More
If you want to know what they do during the late evening check this place out. A lot of stores and people having social drinking sessions. Aside from the great design of the place you will see a little glimpse of their everyday life.
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.

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 of whom do not work at weekends the individual businesses inside the market may not be open. Personally I think the City of London is worth visiting on a Saturday as there are so many lovely buildings to look at it is easier when it is not so busy. Also these days there are lots of cafes open at weekends (around Liverpool Street station for instance) so you will not find it hard to get food or drink here. Also there are loads of other things to see nearby such as St Paul's Cathedral, Museum of London, The Monument,Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe, Borough Market, River Thames..........
