Seven Best Markets to Visit When in London

If travelling to London and visiting some Markets to get a few bargains is your idea of good fun I have just the perfect guide for you. Having lived here most of my adult life and worked in Camden Market for over five years and in Greenwich Market for well over fifteen years I had a good opportunity to find out about every aspect of the markets. But in this article I will concentrate on the fun parts mostly.

Greenwich Market is one of the most unique market place you can visit as cheap imports are not allowed in, general quality of the merchandise is above average. Best time to visit is the weekends.

Greenwich Antique Market is the next stop and if the weather is good you wouldn’t want to leave. Lots of stalls, lots of stuff to look and search through, open weekends only.

Camden Market, This is a tricky place to go to and keep your wallet safe. Very busy, lots of action literally thousands of stalls and crammed with tens of thousands of people every weekend. Do not rely on Camden Town Tube station and use Chalk Farm instead.

Stables Market is next to Camden and Camden Lock Market, trendy clothing and antiques are the most sought after goods here; again weekends only and use Chalk Farm Tube if you can.

Spitalfields Market is open every day but busier on the weekends. At the heart of city of London and the East End you can find from art to organic food, antiques and hand crafts.

Portobello Road, well we have all seen this place in the film Notting Hill, you will not bump in to Julia or Hugh but none the less still full of interesting characters and stalls. From fruit and veg to antiques are sold and anything in between is not missed either. Have fun.

Roman Road Market is a typical British street market with quite a good range of fresh flowers and plants on offer. Usual fruit and vegetable stalls along with clothing and household items are on mass.

All the above places have more cafes and restaurants then I can possibly list or review, however it is quite unlucky to find one that is below average. So have fun and let me have your views too.
