Here’s one of London’s most beautiful market and definitely a must-see! Columbia Rd Flower Market is a little (quite hidden) gem in the heart of the East End and definitely well worth a visit. On Sundays morning the road begins to bloom (literally!) with all sorts of beautiful flowers and plants. Colors are everywhere and the smell in the air is amazing. You’ll find laid back londoners looking for bargains as well as tourists amazed by the beauty around. You may keep hearing stallholders shouting “Everythin’ for a fiver” in their harsh cockney accent which will only contribute to make the experience even more original and nice.
But it’s not all about the flowers. Along the road, indeed, there’s plenty of little independent shops. Be prepared to get tempted by original vintage shops, handmade treasures, beautiful tools for gardening, quirky jewelry and homemade cakes. Check their site! Columbia Rd Flower Market.
