Experience Billingsgate Fish Market

Creator: VisitBritainTV    Length: 3 min  2 sec





Next time you're enjoying a well earned lie-in, spare a thought for the star of this video, Roger Barton. Roger is a fish merchant at Billingsgate fish market - and he has to set off for work at 01:15 in the morning!

There has been a fish market at Billingsgate for more than 400 years - it's the largest inland fish market in the UK, selling more than 25,000 tonnes of fish annually.

So when you're in London, why not take Roger Barton's advice - "go and see St Pauls, Buckingham Palace, The Tower, but come to Billingsgate - see some real London".

Until then - this video is the best way to experience the bustle and energy, the sights and sounds (though not the smells!) of Britain's most famous fish market.
