Photos of the outside of, and area around, Smithfield Market, London. Smithfield Market, London's wholesale meat market, most likely takes its name from the 'smooth field' on which it was built.
This open space used for public events, such as jousts, tournaments and executions. Queen Mary I (1553 - 58) had 300 Protestants burned at the stake at Smithfield, earning her the nickname 'Bloody Mary'. The building opened in 1868, designed by Sir Horace Jones, who was also responsible for Billingsgate and Leadenhall Markets.
