Top 5 flea markets in London

Antique and flea markets in London attract diverse audience. Each of the visitors has his own interests. And all of them unites one thing: the amazing feeling that you experience when you find something unique in the pile of junk. In addition to interesting findings, acquaintance with interesting people are awaiting for you. Here you can chat with experienced collectors, professional hunters for antiques or amateurs and, of course, bargain. We will tell you about the five best flea markets in London, where you will definitely find an amazing thing with a history to give it to someone or leave it to your memory.

1. Camden Passage. Camden Market is divided into three parts, connected only geographically. Antique shops are located in one of them (Camden Passage), but do not constitute the majority. Basically there are shops with vintage clothing, accessories and all kinds of handmade products. Representatives of subcultures are very fond of this market for the opportunity to purchase something atypical, original, existing in one copy, including hand-made jewelry and accessories.

2. Portobello. Portobello, sheltered a myriad of antique shops, is called the largest antique market in Europe. If there is a rarity in the world that has long been removed from production, and you have already despaired of finding it, you will certainly find it here. Although this trading platform is more than two hundred years old, it gained real popularity in the middle of the twentieth century. Pay special attention to the music stores: you can find rare vinyl.

3. Bermondsey Antiques Market. On Friday, a true antiques lover should hurry to make it to the Bermondsey market by five in the morning, because by ten, everything the most interesting is already sold out, and later resold at exorbitant prices at Portobello. By the way, before Bermondsey was known as a place, which was chosen by the buyers of stolen goods.

4. Old Spitalfields Antiques & Flea Market. The ancient indoor market Spitalfields is not only a market place, but also a historical landmark. Do not be embarrassed by the fact that they have been selling food for several centuries. Once a week, namely on Thursday, from 11:00 to 15:30 this pavilion turns into an antique paradise for collectors.

5. The Flat Iron Flea. This small marketplace is just a five minute walk from the Borough Market. It is located among the railway arches and consists of about 30 shops. Here you can find rare retro accessories and vintage clothing, handicrafts and household items. And even vintage furniture, if you want to add something special to your interior. The market runs every Saturday from 11:00 to 18:00 and on Sunday - from 10:00 to 17:00.
