Map & local info
Cloth Fair, tucked away in the City of London, was originally the site of the Bartholomew Fair, where merchants gathered each year in August to trade cloth. Around the corner from Cloth Fair are the Victorian buildings of Smithfield Market, one of the oldest of the many markets in London.
Across from 45a Cloth Fair is the churchyard of St Bartholomew the Great, the oldest parish church in the City of London. Explore the historic features of this wonderful church, founded in 1123, and admire its wealth of impressive architectural features. Visit St Paul's Cathedral and Temple Church too, both situated within walking distance of less than a mile from here. Experience more of the fascinating history of London from prehistoric times to the present day with a visit to the Museum of London.
Postman's Park offers a tranquil break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in the City. For lovers of the performing arts, the Barbican Centre, on nearby Silk Street, is the largest multi-arts venue of its kind in Europe, offering a host of classical and contemporary music concerts, theatre performances, film screenings and art exhibitions. It is also a base for the London Symphony Orchestra.
