  • I was close and I could not resist the curiosity, an absolutely fantastic fish market, sellers going smoothly, considering that I was only doing questions and I wouldn't buy anything!

  • 10min walking from Canary Wharf station on the Jubilee Line. Best time between 6am to 8am. More a wholesale than a fish market. Too many frozen products and haven't seen caught fish so far in two Saturday morning I went, only farmed fish. Nevertheless you can get good prices and overall it's a nice experience, plus you get to prawns long aa your forearm and exotic fish species. What I bought: Salmon from farm 12.5£/kg, Shrimps 10£/kg, Clams 7.5£/kg, 2x Sea Bass farmed in Greece ~8£. Plus keep in mind that either you get a fillet or the whole fish in that case you will have to clean it yourself at home.
  • A great experience if you love seafood! You have to be careful about the products and really need to know how to look for fresh seafoods. There are a lot of good quality fish. It is a good idea to bring cash, some do accept cards.
  • Great place to visit for fresh, value-for-money seafood in London. Make sure to go quite early because a lot of good stuff will be gone if you go late. Parking is £2 for up to 2 hours so it's not expensive at all. We got lobsters, scallops, tiger prawns, squids, and Dover sole all for under £60! Great place to get seafood for dinner parties.
  • Great place to buy fish. We go on a Saturday morning and aim to get there at 5am because that's when they start taking money. Live crab, lobster and scallops aplenty and less than half the price you would pay at the local fish shop. A wide range of fish, some local others flown in from all over the world. We sometimes buy the frozen scallops. They are twice the size of the biggest you will see in the supermarket. What would we do without the place.
  • Billingsgate has got an incredible selection of fish and seafood, fresh and frozen. Staffed by a mixture of cheery but very busy men in wellies this place is one of those London places you should visit once, or at least if you like fish and seafood. Note that there is a minimum age of 12 to enter the market area, this is likely because there is a lot of commotion and things being moved around inside.
