London Markets : Billingsgate Fish Market

Billingsgate is a wholesale fish market in East London. But there are several retail shops also available. Since this is open in early morning hours only, shoppers need to be there in early as possible. There are only few shops open on Sundays also.

Billingsgate fish market has a long history, This was established with a parliament act in year 1699. The first building of the Billingsgate market was build on Lower Thames Street in year 1850's. But the current building was constructed in year 1873 by demolishing the old one. Sir Horace Jones was the architect of that building. In year 1982, this fish market was related to this new venue and the old building is a listed building in UK. Not as early days now the transportation of fish is done by roads.
