  • Visited the place knowing it was better renovated but what a let down. Nothing special about the stores and the facade just wasn't that impressive. No way does it reflect it being the oldest market...  more »
  • Unfortunately there is a lot is scaffolding up at the moment so you can't see much of the architecture.  more »

  • Nice spot for a quick stroll--to call it a Market is a little misleading at this point, as it's really an arcade filled with pubs and shops. But, it is gorgeous and covered, so a great stop if you need to escape the rain. At 19:00 on a Wednesday all that's open is a few pubs, so you can window shop and enjoy the architecture, but I'd definitely recommend coming during the day to enjoy it fully. Not far from here is the Lloyd's building (cool architecture), 30 Saint Mary Axe (the gherkin/egg-shaped building), a monument to the Great Fire of London, and of course The Tower and Bridge plus HMS Belfast.
  • What can I say about this amazing shopping arcade that hasn't been said already. It's stunning. A little bit of the past that takes your breath away. Every which way you look you will something fabulous. The little shops have some really unique goods. This place has to be on everyone's list when visiting London.
