Columbia Road Flower Market

For the capital’s best blooms

Columbia Road, E2 7RG

Forget Covent Garden: the modern day Eliza Doolittle is flogging her flowers at Columbia Road Flower Market. Open only on Sundays, the market is overflowing with much haggling over “10 for a fiver” deals. Come for the flowers (stalls close at around 2:30pm) but stay for the unique east London vibe of independent galleries and shops selling pottery, antiques and the like.
