Camden Market is one of our favourite places to visit in London. It has a plethora of shops, food & drink options and events that will keep you busy from day to night. Don’t miss the hand-crafted flower jewellery made at Crafty Kaya or pick up a unique piece of clothing from Camden Vintage. When you get hungry, head to Only Jerkin’ which features a Caribbean twist on chicken and chips – or try a vegan-friendly option at V Burger. We love Camden Market and consider it a must for sightseeing.
Open: Every Day 10 AM- Late
Location: Camden Lock Place, London NW1 8AF
Old Spitalfields Market
We absolutely love Old Spitalfields Market and the diverse shopping it has to offer. Shop at Deciem also known as ‘The abnormal beauty company’ or Putu and Pickles to pick up something for the little ones. Alternatively, take the high-end route and head to Lululemon, Chanel, and TAG Heuer. While you’re exploring, be sure to stop and try Yum Bun for handmade steamed buns and Monty’s Deli for London’s best Reuben sandwich.

Considered one of the top fashion markets in London, Cabbage & Frocks offers eclectic fashion pieces, accessories, home-ware and food. Check out different fashion stalls each week and don’t miss Dog Day including free doggy competitions and dog displays. Cabbage & Frocks Market is a truly unique market so head on over this Saturday.
Open: Every Saturday from 10 AM- 5 PM

Portobello Road Market
When headed to the Portobello Road Market, your best bet is visiting on Saturday when the market is in full swing. To get a good look at the antique stalls, however, make sure to arrive early. On Saturday, you’ll also find the biggest selection of new fashion pieces such as one-of-a-kind leather bags and hand-made jewellery. For the Fashion Market, walk through the Westway Area where you will find fur coats and designer second-hand clothes as well as merchandise from young, emerging designers. Getting peckish? Pick up some fresh fruit & vegetables on Talbot Road.
