Where the wares and goods are great
With its Victorian architecture, interior details and cobbled floors, London's Leadenhall Market offers a blend of history, shopping, dining, and more. Interestingly, Leadenhall Market was the filming location for Harry Potter's Leaky Cauldron pub, but its most magical resident might have been a Victorian goose named Old Tom. According to legend, this wily bird managed to avoid the butcher shop and instead lived in the market until 1835 and the age of 38. Archaeologists have found evidence that a Roman market existed on this site well before the modern version. The market was also used as a filming location for other films like 'Hereafter,' 'Lara Croft: Tomb Raider' and 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.' This beloved landmark is a treasure trove of culture and commerce, so be sure to explore every nook and cranny.
