If you haven’t read our post about the best markets in London for Curly Girl Abroad yet here’s a little taste!
“London is an amazing place to visit both thanks to its history, its culture and its shopping. If you’re visiting London for a long weekend you must check out some of the brilliant market that’s scattered around town. Here we’ve listed Zaparoom’s favourite 5 markets.
- Brick Lane
The different markets that make up Brick Lane market is quite the mix and it’s really a big bustle coming together. Here you can find anything from food to fashion, to household items and art and you better be quick as this market gets really busy. The quirkiness and flee market feel of Brick Lane Market is what attracts so many of its visitors but the beauty of it is that all of Brick Lane in its own is an array of shops and street art. If you want a couple of cool pics of edgy, hipster London and maybe grab one or two bargains then this is where to go.
- Columbia Road Flower Market
Is another extremely popular London market and you’re best off being one of the early birds in the morning or a bit of a lumber and arrive late in the afternoon. Columbia Road Flower Market as the name suggest only focuses on plants and has been almost unchanged since Victorian times. The market is a joy for all of your senses with beautiful colours and divine scent. The atmosphere is friendly and you can buy anything from exotic to home-grown plants and depending on the season you’ll see different plants. An extra plus for this beautiful market is that the surrounding area is a real little gem so set aside enough time to explore that too.
