Leather Lane & Hatton Garden
If you're looking to put a bit of sparkle into your life take a trip to the internationally renowned Hatton Garden. The area has been at the centre of London's jewelry trade since medieval times. With over fifty-five jewelry shops and related jewelry businesses, Hatton Garden contains the largest and most concentrated cluster of jewelry retailers in the UK. There's also the chance to learn the trade at one of the many workshops running at Holts Academy.
Running in parallel with Hatton Garden is the bargain filled Leather Lane. From fruit and veg to cut price clothing - you never know what you might be able to find at this traditional market. Alongside the market are plenty of cafes and stalls catering to the lunchtime crowd - from Italian delis to curry kiosks. Go check out Grill My Cheese or get your hands on a burrito at Daddy Donkey. Slowly becoming more and more of a foodie-heaven, Leather Lane is also home to some of the best coffee shops in London – Prufrock, and the Department of Coffee and Social Affairs.
