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.
We try to make our walks as inclusive and accessible as possible but please note there are cobbles and a few kerbs.
Our daily walks run from the City Information Centre, just south of St Paul's. You need to book via Eventbrite to secure you place. Note: the cut-off time for booking our daily walks is 21:00hrs the night before. If we don't have any bookings then the walk will not take place.
Our weekly walks have individual booking pages and earlier cut-off times, please see the individual listing.
Some of our walks offer concession rates: valid for over 65s and students. All Eventbrite bookings have a booking fee. We try to make our walks as inclusive and accessible as possible.
