We are not affiliated with Billingsgate Market itself. This is only a fan site.

We offer a brief guide about the services provided by this market in East London.

Many processed or 'added-value' fish and fish products are on display such as cured and smoked fish and roe; prepared products ready for the table; fish soups; cooked shellfish and pates.

Billingsgate is the United Kingdom's largest inland fish market. An average of 35,000 tonnes of fish and fish products are sold through its merchants each year. Approximately 42% of that tonnage comprises fish imported from abroad. The annual turnover of the Market is estimated to be in the region of 300m

Where does the fish come from

Billingsgate is served by almost every port in the United Kingdom-from Aberdeen to Penzance. Most of the fish is transported by road directly from the coast and arrives at the market in the early hours of the morning.

Imported frozen fish is usually shipped in large refrigerated containers. Imported chilled fish is often airfreighted - sometimes from countries thousands of miles away-or arrives by sea via roll-on, roll off ferries. Live imports include lobsters from Canada and eels from as far away as New Zealand.
