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.

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.
