What you can expect

Hello, sunshine! Let's start our morning with a glorious visit to the amazing London's central market. Early in the morning is where this market is at its best, full of local hustle and bustle and it's the best time to see the fresh produce of the day. Wake up with the right foot during this private experience discovering the local vibes of this unique market.

I'll show you the past and present of this historic site right in the center of London. See & experience a place only locals know, a unique market in the city that is really off the beaten path!

The City of London's original Central Market has a rich history dating to when it was a "smooth field" for jousting in the middle ages. Not only will you hear about the market of the past, but you will also explore today's lively market and inspect what fresh produce is on offer. You will even get to speak with a few local merchants to understand the life of the market! And to make your authentic market experience even better, I'll take you to a nearby cafe to savor a traditional, filling English breakfast.

Join this early bird unique experience to get a taste of the city while most are still sleeping. This experience is 100% personalizable to your wishes! Simply reach out to and let me know exactly what you wish.
