London street market walks


Home | Walks | Testimonials | About us | Other walks


London markets are more than just places to buy fruit, veg, flowers and bric-a-brac.  For years they`ve been hives of social activity and neighbourhood gathering places.

Walks are led by Sandra Shevey who originated the socio-historical overview of London markets.

A patchwork of old photos, prints, memoirs, as well as literary/film accounts is used to summon up a sense of these old relics in times past; and whenever possible we  endeavour to include in the itinerary views of extant market remains.

Current walks include:

  • Covent Garden

  • Spitalfields-Petticoat/Brick Lanes

  • Southall Asian Market

  • Whitechapel East End

  • Borough Market

  • Smithfield Market

  • Bell and Church Streets

Among others to follow.
