Normally based in Walthamstow, the famous home of neon signs, Gods Own Junkyard currently fills three stores in Leadenhall Market with their branded illuminated displays.
Gods Own Junkyard has been working on film sets for over 40 years and has a shop where they sell works, either from films or commissioned especially for the shop.
For a few weeks, however, part of their collection can be found in the City of London’s Leadenhall Market, and the display, in three stores, includes highlights of signage from Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut, Judge Dredd, Batman, Tomb Raider, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the Dark Knight.
The main store, with items for sale – which includes Gods Own Junkyard branded gifts – is in the center of the market, and there are two side displays around the corner.
One of the displays is in a part of the marker which is very famous with tour guides as it is the setting for the Leaky Cauldron from the Harry Potter films.
The neon lights are lit every day until the end of July. They are bright enough to see clearly in the daytime, no need to wait until it gets dark to appreciate them.
