  • The only surviving wholesale food market within central London, this is a meat-eater's paradise. Of course, you have to be up early, and there is regularly discussion of closing it to house a museum, or a shopping mall, or more luxury flats but this is well worth a visit. The architecture is stunning. Of particular note is the Christmas meat auction on Christmas Eve. Real bargains to be found, and the meat is excellent quality. To be done at least once for the atmosphere, before it's gone forever as a market.
  • Fresh meat for good price? This is your place. Just walk around and soak up the unique atmosphere of this place early in the morning, see how busy the meat traders are. You can have coffee and breakfast around the market, and if you take your time to talk to people here, you can hear amazing stories from "the old days of the market"
  • Butcher market of London. Market takes place 2am to 10am everyday. You can smell meat in the day time also. Interesting history associated with this place. Would be good to go with a guided tour to know about it.
  • Can understand people wanting to get there in the early hours of the morning for meat. Personally I love the buildings which were designed by Sir Horace Jones in the Victorian era and are now Grade II listed buildings. They fell in to a bad state of disrepair during the 1960's and onwards and have been going through a rejuvenation scheme, quite rightfully so. An area with so much history, lovely to walk around.
  • Beautiful building not only for his history but also because of his arquitectura vakue
