The old street markets are one of London`s most enduring characteristics and on this daily 3 hour tour with guide Sandra Shevey you will visit three different markets across 33 boroughs from a remit of 15 traditional London street markets.
The tours run every day but at different times to showcase the markets both at night and during the day. The Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday tours run at 6pm and end 9pm while the Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday tours run 11am - 2pm.
The Christmas Eve Day tour is great inasmuch as we capture a bit of the traditional meat market auction that features in Dickens`s `A Christmas Carol`
