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
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.
