SMITHFIELD or, to give it its official name, London Central
Markets, is the largest wholesale meat market in the UK and one of the largest of
its kind in Europe.
Located within the Square Mile of the City of London it
is housed in three listed buildings.
It is a place packed with history -
there has been a livestock market on the site for over 800 years - and yet is as
modern as tomorrow with its state of the art facilities for the receiving, storing
and dispatching of meat and poultry.
