Leadenhall Market Guided Tour (October 2021)

Leadenhall Market: burials, bombs and fantastic beasts

Leadenhall goes back nearly 2000 years. It was built on the site of the Roman Basilica and Forum, and during the medieval period was a market selling meat, fish and herbs, continuing well into the 17th century, as a place where wool merchants baled and weighed wool - the source of the City of London's wealth.

There have been people living and working in this area since Roman times and a huge amount has happened to them! As the days draw in, take a walk on the dark side of Leadenhall with us this October to explore some of their sinister history - with witchcraft, murder and death at almost every turn.

This is a limited edition tour with only 4 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.

Places must be booked in advance and our Covid-19 safety procedures followed.  Book your place here. Note: booking fee applies

We offer daily walks around the City of London

Our daily walks run from the City Information Centre, just south of St Paul's. Although booking is advised it's fine to just turn up on the day and pay.

In addition, you can visit some of the City's delightful gardens, while in the evening take a stroll along the river to admire London's bridges, now beautifully lit thanks to the Illuminated River Project. 

Note: We try to make our walks as inclusive and accessible as possible.

If you would like to organise your own walk, lecture or a virtual tour, then please use our Find a Guide section. If you're a member of an Arts Society or a U3A group we'd love to take you on a tour of the City. And if you're a company based in the City who would like to organise a social event for your work colleagues, why not book an evening walk with us? As guides we know where all the good pubs are!

If you've been on a walk recently we'd love to hear from you. Why not leave a review on our TripAdvisor page?
