Having never really had a stroll around the City of London it was quite a surprise to find this Victorian market sitting amongst the prominent, modern high rise buildings. The market, which dates back to the 14th century, is surprisingly quiet during the weekends, as like much of the immediate area is closed until the hustle and bustle of business returns on Monday morning. The very unusual image showing the hanging books is by artist Richard Wentworth and is named the ‘False Ceiling’, which includes 1600 books. This is a gem of a place and well worth visiting, particularly during the weekend.
