City of London Guide, Peter Twist, in Grand Avenue Smithfield.  (c) Niki Gorick, 2014 - see her Website for more photos & account of her own visit.

The tour is a great opportunity to experience the hustle and bustle of the City of London’s last surviving food market first hand. It focuses on the workings of the famous Central Market at Smithfield but will also cover:


The fabric of the market which has evolved over a thousand years

The long and turbulent history of Smithfield

The growth of the notorious cattle market

The gaiety of Bartholomew Fair


For safety reasons people attending this walk must be at least sixteen years and each tour group is limited to twelve people.

Please note that because of the restriction on numbers your booking will only be valid when it is confirmed. These tours are very popular and book up quickly. 

Bookings can also be made for groups on other dates - please contact smithfield | cityoflondonguides ! com for details. 

You will be met at Barbican Underground Station by your guide. Please note that you must be present by 06:45am as the tour will leave on the hour at the latest.
