Columbia Road Flower Market
I love going to see the gorgeous flowers in an array of colours, and to feel the bustling vibe. There is often live music, and couples and families strolling around. You always see people around east London with flowers wrapped in brown paper and you know they’ve been to Columbia Road. The street is also full of independent shops full of creativity. They start setting up at 4 am and open at 8 am, though I’ve never made it there before 12 noon.
Must see. East London’s vibrant Sunday flower market is a local favourite. Here, you can barter with market stall merchants for everything from houseplants and fresh bouquets to succulents and seeds. Columbia Road is well worth a visit from Monday to Saturday, too: the lack of Sunday crowds leaves…
Famous flower market around 15 mins walk. Walk down broadway market and continue going to the end. Only open Sundays and gets VERY busy!
One of the busiest but prettiest things to do in London. Only on Sundays. Get there early. Lots to eat, drink and see roundabouts.
Every sunday from 9am to till about 2pm the flower market is full of life and activity. Great atomsphere and lots of little cafes and shops to explore.
“Market on Saturdays, lovely to visit the market and go for a nice stroll in the park afterwards.”
“For food, antiques and retro clothing check out this awesome market. Open 7 days a week.”
