Columbia Road Flower Market
Head east towards Bethnal Green on a Sunday morning, and you’ll discover the Columbia Road Flower Market. Teeming with flower stalls, this place is definitely bustling. Feel free to barter here, and be amazed by the variety of blooms on offer. Never fear though, it’s not just cut flowers – if you’re looking for pot plants, shrubs, bulbs and herbs, you’ll find them here too.
If you’re not in this area on a Sunday, there’s still plenty of places to browse and spend your money. The Victorian buildings are packed with art dealers, antiques, quirky bric-a-brac, vintage clothing and a variety of places to eat and drink.
