The Museum of London is on an epic journey of transformation and in a few years will move to the beautiful and largely empty market buildings in West Smithfield. The General Market, described by heritage architect Julian Harrap as ‘one of the last remaining Victorian relics in London’, will form a focal point of the new museum. Left empty for almost 30 year the stunning design and intricate detail of Sir Horace Jones’s original building will be restored and reimagined for collection displays, public programming and world-class learning facilities while retaining the historic fabric and market feel.Join the Museum of London and the team behind this exciting new project to hear more about the building and the plans for its future.
