Leadenhall Market



Leadenhall Market

A market with a rich heritage & made famous in the Harry Potter

Location: 48-51 Leadenhall Market, EC3V 1LT

Description: Late in the first century, a basilica (law courts) and forum (market place) were built on where 'Leadenhall Market' stands today.

It is the largest such site North of the Alps and occupied an area bigger than that of Trafalgar Square.

The building was knocked down in 1881 and redesigned by Sir Horace Jones
(architect of Billingsgate and Smithfield Markets) with Wrought iron and glass replace the previous stone structure.

In 1991, Leadenhall Market was extensively restored and Hollywood noticed the charms of Leadenhall in 2001 when it is used as Diagon Alley in
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
