Smithfield Market Tours

Smithfield Market
Today one of the largest wholesale meat markets in all of Europe, Smithfield Market has been buying and selling meat and poultry for over 800 years. Also known as London Central Markets, this is the largest historic market still standing in the City of London.

Early risers can still witness some of Britain’s finest meats being hand-picked by London restaurateurs, or purchase their own meats, poultry, olive oils and cheese. The structure itself is known for its bright colors and Victorian architecture, and many visitors combine their visit to the market with a stop at one of the trendy Farringdon-area restaurants.

Practical Info

Close to St. Paul’s Cathedral, the market is just a few minutes’ walk from both the Farringdon and Barbican tube stations. The market is open Monday through Friday, and parking is also available in the Smithfield Underground Car Park. Vendors begin selling at 3 a.m. and continue until mid-morning, so it is recommended that visitors arrive by 7 a.m.
Address: East Market Building, London EC1A 9PQ, England
Hours: Monday-Friday 3am until mid-morning
