Smithfield Market 1868

London, England
Architect: Sir Horace Jones (Central Market)

Still a working market through which much of the capital’s meat passes, Smithfield has been the site of livestock trading for more than 800 years. Made up of three listed buildings, our picture was taken on Grand Avenue, the road going through the centre of the two main non-poultry trading Central Market buildings (by Sir Horace Jones). The newer General Market buildings to the west of the site are due to become the new Museum of London being designed by Stanton Williams and Asif Khan.
