Good little spot and lots of activity. Some nice bars and restaurants. Usually full of city workers swamping beer and talking loudly. Lively and very close to Lloyds of London.

The architecture is really beautiful! In terms of shopping, you need the monies, its an expensive place. Also there is part here which was used in the Harry Potter films, Bull's Head Passage.

A great part of London that has kept the architecture of the Victorian Market. It is actually now changed to a Upmarket eating area and retained little of the products of the original Market.

Visited here as we were too early for our appointment at the nearby SkyGarden - glad we did! A wonderful Victorian building with ornate shop fronts. Mainly eating and drinking establishments but also other retail stores.

Early Saturday afternoon, not much going on, most shops and coffee shops are closed, in the market and in side streets.

Do not miss it if you are a fan of Harry Potter. The building is like a hidden gem located in the financial area of London. If you are happened to go for skygarden or borough market, check it out as they are quite close.

Daughter heard the JK Rowling based Diagon Alley on Leadenhall, so off we trekked. You can see why it's the inspiration - covered alley of quaint shops. Very Victorian, unique and a real range of items to buy.

City of London
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
