Leadenhall Market, Limited Edition Walk: in Celebration of Christmas

Join the City's Official Guides for this limited-edition evening walk this November and December.

Every Wednesday 6:30-8:00pm, from 22 November to 13 December 2023

Leadenhall Market – the perfect Christmas destination, and the most stunning place to visit in The City at Christmas time

The festive season provides the perfect excuse to uncover the Christmas delights and the amazing festive tales of Leadenhall, the City’s oldest market and one of the jewels in its crown.

From its Roman roots and festivals to Dick Whittington, then onwards and upwards to the Victorian Christmas festivities as told by Dickens, to the luckiest and pluckiest goose in The City, the City of London Guides will lead you in exploring Christmas past and present in and around this most ancient of London’s markets, so please make it a part of your festive frolics.

This is a limited-edition tour with few dates and limited tickets. Thanks to financial support from Leadenhall Market, tickets are heavily subsidised.
