London’s selection of markets is perhaps one the city’s most appealing characteristics for visitors, and each has its own unique character waiting to be discovered.
Camden Market is perhaps the most widely known market in London and attracts a very diverse range of people, offering everything from arts and crafts, second-hand and vintage clothing to fantastic food from all over the world. Easy to access from a centralised spot like a St Pancras hotel, the market is sure to entertain anyone who visits on a weekend.
Brick Lane is another of London’s well-known markets, and is a very art-focused market, selling everything from one-off art pieces to vintage clothing and furniture. The market also offers a great diversity of cuisine from around the world and really serves to highlight the different experiences and cultures that London has to offer.
Portobello Road Market is another spot to visit on your trip to London, with its variety of unusual shops selling a host of alternative clothes, antiques and foods. Although not as large as some of the city’s other markets, Portobello is still a very vibrant and interesting shopping experience that is worth visiting.
