This magnificent 19th-century market building was originally designed by Sir Horace Jones and entirely renovated in 1988 by acclaimed architect Richard Rogers. At the foot of The City, next to the Tower of London and facing the Thames, Old Billingsgate is within easy access of London Bridge Station. Its 7,800 square metres of floor space make it the ideal location for large-scale events such as Photo-London where some 60 international galleries and publishers exhibit their wares.
