  • Great staff who work well and quick service but avoid busiest times. Hold your nose or take a clothes peg to put on it - as it really smells awful ! If your love fish the variety available is huge. fr...  more »

  • Cash only everywhere. 2 quid for parking but you need to get here early. Great offers on fish, can get a whole salmon for 11 quid which is wonderful for a centerpiece roast. Prawns sold by the kilo with 1 kilo minimum - approx 10 quid per kilo depending on vendor. It's best to look around as some stalls near the entrance are charging slightly higher. Very wide variety of fish but expect to clean your own.
  • Known as the biggest fish market not only in London. As far as I know, best prices and deals are being offered early in the morning. Worth visiting for all kinds of seafood!
  • amazing market! Best place to get fish in London but be prepared to get up super early!
  • Great wholesale fish market with good prices If you look. Got prawns with head on for £8/kg and smoked salmon trimmings for £2 for 200g. Place is clean and the workers are friendly. Your clothes may smell a bit fishy after you leave though. Got there at 6am and still plenty of deals and fish variety (although if you want the real good stuff, go super early). If taking the DLR, get off at Blackwall and follow the signs under the bridge.
  • Great deals and loads of different types of seafood to buy. If you go here for seafood you will never buy it again from a super market.
