Look of the Day - Leadenhall Market

Leadenhall Market is a beautiful covered market in the City of London. Located to the south of Leadenhall Street between Gracechurch Street and Lime Street, it is one of the oldest markets in London dating back to the 14th century. Originally a meat, game and poultry market, it stands on what was the centre of Roman London.

Leadenhall Market was used to represent the area of London near The Leaky Cauldron and Diagon Alley in the film Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I was really excited to visit Harry Potter’s filming studio (upcoming blog post) and also see the original location!

There are stalls selling flowers, cheese, meat as well as retail shops, pubs and restaurants in the market building. Its ornate roof structure, maroon and cream Victorian facade and cobbled floors make it a tourist attraction and ideal filming location.

The blue shop is where The Leaky Cauldron was based on…guess what shop it is in reality?
