London’s historic Leadenhall Market, home to 35 boutique retailers, wine-bars, restaurants, cafes and an award-winning pub, is looking forward to welcoming visitors back as we enter step three of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown restrictions.
The iconic covered Victorian market with its beautiful, airy wrought iron and glass structure, is an ideal place to safely shop and dine from May 17th, when groups of up to six diners or two family groups are welcome to drink and dine indoors. Situated at the heart of the City, minutes from Bank station, Leadenhall’s soaring painted roof will also ensure visitors who wish to drink and dine outdoors are protected from rain.
Leadenhall Market’s traditional English pub, The Lamb Tavern, will reopen indoors from May 17th for groups of six, or two households up to 10 people and will be serving Sunday Lunch for the first time ever – Sundays from 12pm – 5pm. The Lamb was established in 1780 and was rebuilt in its present form in 1881 when Leadenhall Market was reconstructed.
Boutique stores and dining options now open include: Traditional French patisserie Aux Merveilleux de Fred, Cheesemonger and wine and port bar Cheese Leadenhall, French restaurant Luc’s Brasserie, new Italian destination Rocca serving drinks and food, Italian restaurant Osteria Del Mercato, Bedales and Brokers wine bars, Pizza Express, Korean restaurant Bibimbap, Regis Snack Bar, specialist drinks retailer Amathus, family-owned jewellers Beau Gems, British luxury clothing stores Barbour and Reiss, Flying Tiger, Timpsons, hair salons Chequers and Nicholson & Griffin, beauty salon and clinic Askinology and opticians Hawkes & Wainer.
Leadenhall Market will be celebrating its 700th anniversary this year with a series of exciting events – beginning on May 26th with the Gods Own Junkyard neon film exhibition. Visitors past and present are also being asked to share memories via the Market’s social channels using #Leadenhall700.
