Leadenhall Market is a covered market located in the London district of the City.
Although the market dates back to the 14th century, it was not until 1881 that its current building was constructed. It was designed by Sir Horace Jones in the Art Nouveau style. It is decorated with plant-like motifs painted in green, maroon and cream colours. It has cobbled floors and a roof covered in crystals.
Leadenhall Market has become a popular tourist attraction thanks to the unique structure of the building as well as the variety of shops housed there. There is a parking lot attached to the market. The main entrance to the market, made of narrow gabled red brick and Portland stone blocks in a C17 Dutch style, is on Gracechurch Street.
In 1972 the market was listed a Grade II* Listed Building.
