Don’t miss seeing the Lord Mayor of the City of London fire up the Christmas lights for 2017 on 16th November at 6 pm. This year, Christmas at Leadenhall market is done to live choral music. There will be plenty of music and entertainment from 5pm to 9pm. Leadenhall Market is a restored Victorian covered market that sells traditional game, poultry, fish and meat. Although there has been a forum (market place) on where Leadenhall Market stands today since the first century AD, the current wrought iron and glass building was designed in 1881 by Sir Horace Jones (architect of Old Billingsgate and Smithfield Markets). Don’t miss Christmas at Leadenhall Market!
