Great place for fresh seafood!
Get there early as they close at 09:30.
As well as seafood, there is a cafe there which I plan to try as well.

Long queue, one rude security staff, not allowed to toilet
mar. 2021
On 27/03/21, around 5 to 5:30am, the queue was very long (almost 500 people). At 6:30 to 7am, We stayed in the queue for around 1 and half hour until my husband couldn't wait for toilet. It was only around 10 people before us for entering to the market. He couldn't wait any more so he approached to the security man who controlled the queue in the front and explained his situation. The man asked him to go back to the queue rudely and didn't allow him for the toilet. This officer said he didn't believe it because some people would use toilet for excuse to avoid the queue. My husband came back to the original queue and waited for another minute. He told me he started to feel sick so he went to the man again and this time he was still not allowed for toilet, so he continued to walk towards the direction of toilet because he couldn't wait any more. The security man shouted to him loudly and I went to him and explained again we were only minutes away from the entrance (he could see it as we were only meters away from him) and my husband would come back to join me after if we were still not called for entering. He still insisted going to toilet was not allowed and shouted to me that both of us wouldn't be allowed for entering to the market on that day. Many people heard it and it was really embarrassing. He knew we had been in the queue for a long time and there was no other purpose to request for toilet near the end of the queue. Actually they shouldn't make assumption that the people asked for toilet were for the purpose of avoiding the queue. We finally reported the incident to the head of the security and formally made a complaint by writing later. We requested for a sorry. Although the manager had promised to undertake further training to improve the service which we appreciated, he also replied the officer concerned had told him differently and we didn't receive any sorry from this officer. We did nothing wrong. We personally felt to be bullied and assaulted. There is no toilet outside of the building and the queue could be 2 hours or more in early morning. We are Billingsgate regular customers for over 20 years , but we haven't been there any more since the incident happened. We have been happy with the quality of the seafood and all traders have been very polite and professional. I am still feeling very hurt from that officer. So this comment is left not for the traders and products. The traders are 5 stars. If you visit this place, try to avoid weekends during Pandemic time and don't drink too much water because there is no toilet available outside of the market.

Long queue, short queuing time, and amazing fish
feb. 2021
Amazing market for fish lovers, there were so many varieties of fish, and for so cheap, and i went at 6:30 on a Saturday, and there was only a 15min queue, and i recommend that if you see a long queue, don't be put off, they go very quickly.

Post Covid Review
jul. 2020 • Par
I’ve visited once post covid and didn’t see any reviews regarding the distancing.

I arrived at about 3:30 and there was already a massive queue and it was a bit of a struggle to find parking. After just under an hour and a half we managed get in. In the queue there are many people who don’t wear masks and most social distancing isn’t being practiced.

In the market there is zero social distancing although there are reminders that are played infrequently over the intercom, there is probably too many people let in at a time to adhere to the guidelines.

Most people we saw go in came back out within 30 minutes which helps but there are some people, like us,who were in there for just over an hour.

I’ve seen reviews recommending people to arrive a bit later which is what I might do for my next visit but for those that are very COVID conscious, there isn’t really any social distancing so you may not be entirely comfortable.

Top tips for visiting post-Covid
jul. 2020
Top tip: Go at 5.15am on a Thursday. Read why below.

So, there are queues and times have changed so to help other people, my friends and sister have asked me to post this review.

I went on a Saturday in June and it took almost 3 hours in a queue and by the time we got in it was closing.

So this time which was yesterday, I went on a Thurdsay and it took 55 minutes in the queue after arriving at 4.15am. The queue had 200 people approximately and they were letting in about 150 people in per hour or so, roughly.

The queue was gone totally by 6.00am, so I think that if you went at 5.30am on a Thursday, you'd be totally fine and you will find little or no queue.
At that time, there is a lot of choice - stalls start closing at 6.30/7.00.

The "peak" time I think is 4.00-4.30am as this is when a lot of traders and restaurants are buying. So avoid the peak but don't leave it will 6.00 either - go in between these times.

Remember - no trolleys are allowed inside the market, you need to leave them in a designated area and no open toes shoes or sandals, and no kids (thank god for that!).

Visiting under social distancing.
jun. 2020
Reviewing again with tips for visiting during Covid.

Today (Sat 13 June) me and my sister arrived at 4.30am to find a queue. We got in at 7.00am. People in the queue were well spirited and well behaved.

I learned from some purchasers that those who arrived at 4.00am found a queue.

At 7.00am some sellers like Selsea were gone, but James Nash was trading and I bought from them.

So my advice is:

1. If you want to go on a Saturday, be there for 4.00am opening. If you are arriving after 4.45am, best not to go I think.
2. Take a book with you
3. Make sure you don't need to use the loo.
4. Stock up and to save time best to go to the established sellers.

Best of all - consider going on a weekday.

To me the wait was worth it. Excellent variety as always, great prices.
