London best Sunday markets

What to do Sunday in London, if you don`t have any specific plans? The answer is obvious: to go to one of the Sunday markets of the capital. Each of them is unique in its own way, but you will not be able to leave any of them empty-handed.

The Brick Lane Market. The Brick Lane Market cannot be compared to anything. It seems to consist of a dozen bizarre marketplaces, flowing one into another. The variety of products sold here is breathtaking: from all sides you are surrounded by household items and decor elements, ready-made food and raw products, vintage clothing, antiques and much more. There is also a flea market, so watch your feet carefully. And remember that there are always a lot of people here: you will have to forget about your personal space for a while.

Brick Lane Tea Rooms. This is probably the most eclectic part of the Brick Lane market. Tea Rooms, located under the roof of a relatively small warehouse, are a number of very small open shops selling everything from handmade jewelry and antique porcelain to vinyl records and old-fashioned suitcases. 91 Brick Lane, London, UK

Backyard Market. Backyard, focused on the sale of decorative and applied arts, proudly demonstrates a wide range of products. Kiosks and counters of this part of the market are both inside the warehouse and on the street. 146 Brick Lane, London, UK

Boiler House yard. You cannot go to the Brick Lane market and not go to the restaurant yard of Boiler House. There are dozens of cuisines of the world: Greek, French, Turkish, Polish, Malay... And there is also a lounge bar and a secret garden for the most refined visitors. 152 Brick Lane, London, UK

Sunday UpMarket. This part of the market is the heart of Brick Lane. Here, among the incredible variety of goods, you can spend the whole day. Every Sunday, 140 points with the highest quality and expensive goods are opened on the Sunday Upmarket, and this excluding food counters offering Ethiopian coffee, sweets from Japan and various delicacies. 91 Brick Lane, London, UK

Vintage Clothing Market. Only here you can see so many vintage clothes at once. Tables and counters, literally absolutely full of accessories from the last century, occupied a huge warehouse basement. On the hangers, you can find everything, from leather jackets and dresses from denim and ending with knitted sweaters and tops. 85 Brick Lane, London, UK

Camden Market. This market has a special charm. Here you can stumble upon completely unexpected objects, and some things belong only Camden. All the goods are spread out on different counters, food and drinks are sold from the tables, fashionable dresses hang almost over the heads, and bedspreads with everything that can be guessed collectible lay under the feet. On the market site, some things can be bought online, but a stroll here is incomparable pleasure. Camden High Street (at the intersection with Buck Street), London, UK

Camden Lock Market. This part of the market, which occupies several small picturesque streets along the canal, has a special popularity among visitors: about 150,000 people come here over the weekend. The history of Camden Lock began in 1975. Then they sold only works of art, now on the shelves you can find everything you like: goodies, gifts, clothes... Specifically, it is worth mentioning jewelry shops offering jewelry made in one copy and bookshops. Camden Lock Place, London, UK

Stables Market. Walking around Stables will be less atmospheric, but still very interesting. The market has been recently reconstructed and expanded, but despite the new shiny surfaces of the counters and stands, it is still cozy here. Furniture, fashion and vintage clothing, food... There are almost 700 stores here, but on weekends only. Chalk Farm Road, London, UK

Old Spitalfields Market. Old Spitalfields brings to this list of London markets a share of the classics. It is simply impossible to list the entire assortment of goods: custom-made clothes and frames for hand-made spectacles, French cheeses and rolls of expensive cashmere ... From other markets, Old Spitalfields differs by the fact that there are several chain stores here, such as Wagamama and Tiger. And it works not only on weekends. On Thursdays, antiques and all sorts of vintage things are sold here, and on Fridays - fashionable clothes and works of art. Horner Square, London, UK
