Portobello Road is one of the most famous street markets in the world. Vacation Perfect has some vacation rentals available nearby, so shopping is easy. The market has a long and rich history stretching back to the 19th century. Browse the stalls filled with antiques, jewelry, furniture, vintage clothing and lots more.
This is a busy market with a lot of energy, much different than as famously depicted in My Fair Lady! We recommend you shop at Covent Garden during the week or in the morning. This market is excellent for finding quirky boutiques. The market is also lively for performing artists like singers, mime artists and more, as well as a terrific foodie scene.
One of the best places for fresh and beautiful flowers is along Columbia Road. It’s located in London’s East End. Make sure that you arrive in the morning to get first dibs on a spectrum of colorful flowers. However, if you can’t make it early, you will still enter a magical atmosphere filled with music, banter, great food and more. It evokes scenes of a bygone era.
Between Liverpool Street and Brick Lane, you can find Spitalfields Market. Here you can expect to find shops, restaurants and an ever-changing selection of craft stalls. If you visit the market on a Thursday, you will be in for a treat. Thursdays are a retro dream; expect to peruse old maps, charming wooden Victorian desks, vintage dolls, lovely lace and well-loved leather satchels.
