Columbia Road Market is the place to go on a Sunday morning… Over night this place fills up with an abundance of flowers that line the streets. Either get there super early. The early bird gets the worm! Or you can leisurly rock up at around 2pm as things are winding down to get the last bargains of the day before it closes down at 3pm!
If you’re in London town on a Sunday, then its worth getting up a little earlier (hangover or not) to wander down Columbia Road… its a bloggers heaven! Gorgeous flowers, great little boutiques and some pretty brilliant coffee shops. You’ll be surprised about the galleries, pottery shops and fragrance shops.
You can get enough vibrant flowers to fill your house for next to nothing! With trays, pallets and buckets bursting at the seams there is certainly something you’ll love.
The closest tube stop is Bethnal green, then its just a short walk to Columbia road, just follow the hoards of people and the gorgeous bouquets people are walking back with!
It can get super busy so if your pup isn’t the best in crowds or can get nervous, i’d advise carrying them! Don’t forget you can stop off for some great breakfast, stop off for some smoked salmon and cream cheese bagels or scrambled eggs on toast!
Its not all shopping and spending money in London… You don’t even need to buy anything! Its just nice to people watch and get out for a Sunday stroll.
