Smithfield Market

Smithfield Market
One of the largest wholesale meat markets in Europe, Smithfield Market—also known as London Central Markets—is frequented by chefs, butchers, and curious tourists. Located in the oldest part of London, the area has hosted livestock markets for close to a millennia and was also site of bloody public executions in the Middle Ages.

The Basics
Soak up the history at Smithfield Market—it was once a field used for grazing animals, has hosted medieval jousting tournaments, and was the spot where “heretics,” including Scottish revolutionary Sir William Wallace, were executed. Smithfield was transformed from a livestock market to a covered meat market in the 19th century by architect Sir Horace Jones. Today, come to experience the only major wholesale meat market left in central London.

Smithfield Market may be included on select walking or bike tour itineraries of London, and, thanks to its association with William Wallace, is a highlight stop on haunted London tours.
