Clint Eastwoods directors chair for Hereafter

Popular film location in London for all types of production

Contact the film team about using Leadenhall Market as a film shoot: a great location for its architecture, atmosphere and rain-free cover.

Leadenhall Market has eye catching Victorian architecture of brightly painted wrought iron beams to create a large covered area, with controllable entry points and many intriguing nooks and crannies, this creates an ideal filming location for all types of production. Take a 360° virtual tour of this wonderful venue.

This atmospheric setting has meant that many feature films (Red 2), documentaries, dramas (EastEnders), pop videos (Erasure) and corporate videos (BBC One 'Rhythm & Movement' ident), as well as being popular for photographic shoots, have been produced at this beautiful location within the City of London.

The grandeur of Leadenhall Market has become a popular choice as a filming location and features in many major films. The visually stunning location has in recent years, been used in the Clint Eastwood directed feature film Hereafter, Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus and even Lara Croft, in Tomb Raider, was seen roaring through Leadenhall Market on her motor bike.

Part of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (the first film in the blockbuster series) was filmed in Leadenhall Market. The market was used to represent the area of London leading to the popular wizard pub The Leaky Cauldron and the magical shopping street Diagon Alley. The reality was it was a then empty shop, which is now an opticians store in the Bull’s Head Passage..
