Leicester has been a market town for over 700 years. Today the Leicester market is a bustling cosmopolitan mix of over 300 stalls (fresh produce, books, leather goods, clothing) in the heart of the city. It is the largest covered market in Europe. The family of a local football celebrity who started his professional career with Leicester City FC are still fruit and vegetable traders here.
In the centre of the market is the old Corn Exchange building, built in 1850 and flanked by stone steps. This now serves as a restaurant and bar. Outside is a stature of the Duke of Rutland.
Adjacent is the Indoor Market hall which houses the fish market and a delicatessen. The original ornately designed Fish Market hall which had distinctly cast iron pillars was closed in the mid 1970s but was retained as part of the new structure.
It can be approached from Cheapside (adjacent to the Clock Tower); from the corner of Granby Street and Horsefair Street and from any of the narrow streets and arcades leading from High Street and Hotel Street.

Indoor: Tuesday to Saturday
Jewry Wall and Roman Baths
Leicester is steeped in history and there are many ancient monuments and places of historic interest, particulary to the south and west of the city centre. It was originally a Roman settlement (Ratae Coritanorum) where the Foss Way crossed the River Soar.
A five minute walk away from the Clock Tower is the Jewry Wall, one of the largest surviving pieces of Roman building in the country and one of Leicesters most famous landmarks. It consists of a wall with two arched doorways which form the entrance to the Roman baths. The foundations and outline of the baths are laid out at the foot of the wall.
The Leicester Museum of Archaeology stands within the grounds housing displays of the Leicester area from prehistoric to mediaeval times. Its large Roman collection includes mosaics and wall paintings. The museum also shows a multimedia presentation The Making of Leicester the story of Leicester and its citizens from the Iron Age to the year 2000.
