Places of Interest Near to LBBA

The London Eye


The Coca-Cola London Eye is centrally located in the heart of the capital, gracefully rotating over the River Thames opposite the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

At 135 metres, the Coca-Cola London Eye is the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel; a feat of design and engineering, it has become the modern symbol representing the capital and a global icon. The experience showcases breath-taking 360-degree views of the capital and its famous landmarks and has been the number one visitor experience in the city for the past decade.

 

An experience on the Coca-Cola London Eye will lift you high enough to see up to 40 kilometres on a clear day and keep you close enough to see the spectacular details of the city unfolding beneath you.

Map: See Smithfield Market on a map

Nearest Station: Barbican, Farringdon

About: Meat has been bought and sold at Smithfield for more than eight hundred years, making it one of the oldest markets in London. Eighty-five thousand tons of produce pass through the market each year including meat, poultry, cheese, pies and savouries. The prices negotiated at Smithfield directly affect the costs of meat and poultry throughout the United Kingdom.

Many of the best restaurants and hotels buy their meat at Smithfield and the site is famed for the quality of the produce available.  Recently the market has undergone a seventy million pound refurbishment and is now considered the most modern meat market in Europe. The building itself is a huge Victorian grade II listed building. The name Smithfield comes from the first documented description of the market, described as a 'smooth field'. Edward III granted the site market status in 1327.

The Smithfield Market is an institution that is as necessary today as it has always been and is worthy of a passing visit on the way to St Paul's or before trying one of the  popular restaurants in the Farringdon area which has developed a trendy reputation over the past few years.

Borough Market

Borough Market is one of London's oldest wholesale fruit and vegetable markets, established by Act of Parliament in 1756 and administered by 21 trustees who have to live in the local community. It covers an area of 4.5 acres.  Operating in the early hours of the morning, the streets used to be quiet and empty during the day. But not any more. Known in its heyday as London's Larder, the capital relied on Borough Market for its essential supplies. It is now being reborn as a retail centre of excellence in addition to the trade activities

HMS Belfast

HMS Belfast is one of the two ships forming the final sub-class of the Royal Navy’s Town-class cruisers, the other being HMS Edinburgh. HMS Belfast is now London’s Floating Naval Museum which exhibits computerised interactive displays to demonstrate techniques from shipbuilding to modern prefabrication methods. Belfast has appeared briefly in several films. Harry Potter and his friends fly past her in ‘Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix’, and she can be seen in an aerial shot of the Thames in ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy’.

Built in the 1850’s, Hays wharf took deliveries from ships from all over the world and the area became known as the ‘Larder of London’. At the galleria there are many traditional craft and market stalls decorating the walkways, sharing the spectacular surroundings with the shops. Open everyday, the stalls offer a variety of products from jewellery to paintings, ceramics to designer children’s wear. There is also a variety of special events held regularly in the galleria. The galleria is the perfect place to take a leisurely stroll by the waterfront or simply sit and watch the world go by the unique atmosphere.
