If you fancy taking a break from shopping for labels in one of the pretty London High Streets, and if you can bring yourself to resist the temptation of emptying your pockets to some of the tastiest street food, you might want to take a detour to this hidden gem of a market.
The Leather Lane Market is just walking distance away from the busy Chancery Lane tube station and connects the main roads of High Holborn and Clerkenwell Road. Although it's one of London's oldest street markets, not many seem to know about it.
This is one place where you'd love to shop for leisure, and certainly one of those places which make you wish to have been born a girl, with some of the prettiest dresses to be found for as low as a quid. The market is also quite famous for its bling and road side food stalls, which mostly cater lunch to a busy crowd of office workers. Ranging from salad bars to fiery Mexican and Indian curries, there would be hardly anything that you won't find on this street.
The market houses makeshift shops on either side of the road along with the regular ones and is open from around 10 am to 3 pm on weekdays. We would recommend this to anyone who wants to spend their day doing something different on a budget and also to food lovers who want to sample street food from around the globe in a single place.
