Old Billingsgate Market
Lower Thames Street, London, EC3R 6DX

Billingsgate Fish Market hails back to the 16th Century trade at Billingsgate Wharf, which became established in its own riverside building in 1849. The arcaded market hall was built on the site in 1875 by the architect Sir Horace Jones and was in use until the fish market moved to its new location in Docklands in 1982.

The old market building itself is now used as a corporate events venue.

How to get here:

»

Underground (District/Circle): Monument - Exit the station and head towards the Monument; follow Monument Street down to where it reaches Lower Thames Street - the old market buildings are on the opposite side of the road. +

Additional Notes:

»

As with much of London, many of the older buildings have since been demolished and replaced with new ones. However, the market itself still stands, as does the smaller building opposite (sandwiched between two modern blocks!).
