I love going to see the gorgeous flowers in an array of colours, and to feel the bustling vibe. There is often live music, and couples and families strolling around. You always see people around east London with flowers wrapped in brown paper and you know they’ve been to Columbia Road. The street is also full of independent shops full of creativity. They start setting up at 4 am and open at 8 am, though I’ve never made it there before 12 noon.

This is a great Sunday market but warning it does get busy as it is very popular amongst visitors and locals. Its great to see the traders working and selling their wares and getting in amongst the hustle and bustle. You can also pick up some great deals on house plants and flowers. If you want to…
8-2pm on Sunday. This place is fun to see the flower market, grab a coffee, croissant or bagel and see some great independent shops. Arrive early to avoid the crowding especially if it’s a sunny day.
The most famous flower market in East London. A true experience where you can return home with arms filled with flowers.
Absolutely love this near by Sunday flower market. Check their website as sometimes the opening times change, but a good time to go is between 1-3pm. If you wish to have lunch in the area booking is recommended. They have some lovely pubs for Sunday Roast!
Check this old London flower market out on a Sunday. Grab a coffee from one of the many cafes down there and enjoy the flowers and the buzz of people. My tip would be to get there later on as it is less crowded. Definitively after 2pm.
Flower market on Sunday but fun all weekend. The Royal Oak is a great pub for drinks, Marksman has excellent food, Brawn is another fantastic restaurant, as are Campania and Morito.
Nice shops, cafes.... flowers, obviously. Also worth visiting to see some typical cockney bartering. Don't stand around taking photos for too long though, the stall operators will tell you to "piss off" if you get in the way of their customers. Go early. It gets busy!

“Outdoor heated pool just a few mins walk away in London Fields Park, a great place to cool off in the summer months, or in the winter for the brave.”
