Wandering the cobbled alleyways of Leadenhall Food Market

 

You might recognise Leadenhall Market from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, where it stood in as the area of London near The Leaky Cauldron and Diagon Alley. And there is something magical about this ornate covered Victorian market in London’s Square Mile. Dating from the 14th century, the current cobbled floor and ornate glass roof were designed in 1881, although it was originally built over the site of the centre of Roman London. It’s primarily a food market, and from Monday to Friday food stalls fill the gaps between the permanent restaurant and independent shops of this beautiful historic market building.
