Old BillingsgateA magnificent 19th-century market building 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 Waterloo Station. With its 7,800 square metres of floor space it's the ideal location for a multitude of large-scale events in the London calendar like Photo-London where some 60 international galleries and publishers exhibit their wares.
