East End flower market
When we first heard about the market, our imaginations just didn’t quite take us to where, in reality, Colombia Road Flower Market is and what it feels like. With an atmosphere both genuinely authentic and modern, we think there’s nowhere else quite the same.
The first thing to note is that it gets really busy here, so if you’re after good flowers and fewer bodies, get to the market early. As the morning wears on, it becomes more about the ambience, with buskers playing jaunty accordions and acoustic guitar. Vendors call out in a cacophony of East End accents, drawing you into the bustling crowds and great deals, and small, independent shops boast curios and freshly baked croissants, with hot coffee.
Tucked between London Fields and Bethnal Green, it’s a fantastic way to start your Sunday morning, as you navigate the crowds and head further into the city.
