Designed by Sir Horace Jones and opened in 1868, this famous London Meat Market gets into action VERY early at around 4am (Mon-Fri) and it is all over by 8am. I visited on a Saturday and it was very quiet with just security staff wandering round. It has recently undergone renovation and looks great.

On this site Queen Mary I had Protestants burned at the stake between 1553 and 1558. Up until around the mid 1800's cattle were still driven here to be slaughtered.
