Discover ancient London at Smithfield Market

London is getting on a bit... take a tour around its oldest bits.

Smithfield Market
Charterhouse Street
Did you know Smithfield Market has been selling meat since medieval times? Don’t worry, the meat hasn’t been there since back them, but it just goes to show how far back our London attractions go.

Head over to the market to pick up some lunch, before dropping in at the Museum of St John. It’s tiny – but tells the story of the Order of St John of the 11th Century - then take a walk past St. Bartholomew’s Church and through the passages of Cloth Flair to get the real medieval London feeling in your bones. This is real London history still coming alive.
