Top Five Favourite Markets in London
When I lived in England, I spent most of my time in London. I loved visiting the markets there, and there was just so much to see! For years, I had read about these amazing markets, and I made it my job to visit every single one. So, here is a list of my Top Five Favourite Markets in London.
My Top Five Favourite Markets in London:
I loved this place – despite the busyness and amount of tourists stopping in my way, I really loved wandering around, buying some delicious baked goods and looking at the gorgeous houses. My parents stayed in Notting Hill when they came to visit me. I remember when I finally found the bookshop. You know, the one from the Notting Hill movie.
2) Camden Lock Market.
This was another place I had read extensively about. I remember reading about this market as a teenager, and I was just so excited to finally get there. I would go there as often as I possibly could, and there was a pizza stall I loved. You could buy pizza by the slice, which I loved. The vintage shops were good, although I never actually bought anything from them, as I found other vintage stores in quieter, cheaper areas of London (if there is such a thing as ‘a cheaper area of London’).
3) Borough Market.
I used to frequent this one all the time when I lived in South East London. My train would come in at London Bridge, and I’d make the walk to the market to pick up some divine food. I’d have to say that if I had to choose any market to go to, it’d definitely be Borough.
4) Brick Lane.
This was more spread out over several streets (if I remember correctly). The food, the shopping, the atmosphere was fab! I also loved the graffiti art that was scattered around!
5) Old Spitalfields Market.
This was quite close to Brick Lane, so I’d often pop in here first. There was an amazing bag stall there, that sold proper leather bags. They were beautiful. I never bought one though, which I regret hugely! I also loved how it was close to Liverpool St Station, which was the station I’d use when coming in from Essex. It meant if I had a little time before my train, I could pop to the market to do some browsing!
I can’t finish this post without mentioning Covent Garden. It really is beautiful there. I’m trying to find a video of a music group I saw playing there once.
And above is my very first youtube video ever!
So, there you have it. My top five favourite markets in London (plus one extra because I’m kind).
