A PARADISE FOR BARGAIN HUNTERS
London is renowned for its markets, which bustle in the streets come rain or shine. The city’s most famous are Camden, Portobello, Borough and Brick Lane. Every Sunday, crowds of shoppers visit this sprawling market, searching for treasures or browsing from stall to stall. London’s famous East End became trendy after undergoing a period of gentrification, like many other European cities. The area holds on to its authentic, hardworking spirit, home to a diverse community. The market atmosphere is set against a backdrop of colourful street art, while smells of street food and sounds of buskers drift into the air. Brick Lane market offers everything, from retro furniture to vintage clothes, trinkets, second-hand books, rare records and more. Because this market isn’t in Central London, it’s popular among locals with fewer tourists than others. It’s a great place to enjoy some of London’s best, most unique shopping.
