Places to Eat in Farringdon: Eat near the Market
One of Farringdon’s most beloved attractions is the Smithfield Market, a wholesale meat market that has been operating for more than 800 years. This area of Farringdon has been a popular spot for public gatherings since medieval times. In addition to public events, this part of London was known for the large amount of gruesome executions that took place in the vicinity. Today, however, the surrounding neighbourhood by Smithfield Market is a popular destination for both tourists and Londoners alike. Just steps from the market are some of the best restaurants in Farringdon. Within reach include fancy cocktail bars, French bistros, craft breweries and cute cafes.
