In And Around The Area
Columbia Road Flower Market is located on the edge of Shoreditch, one of the London’s trendiest areas situated in the East End of the capital. We recommend arriving at the Flower Market early in the morning (it opens at 8am) to avoid the crowds. From here, it’s easy to spend a day exploring Shoreditch. Start by heading to Hoxton Square, where there are lots of restaurants and cafes. Slowly wind your way through some of the narrow streets towards Shoreditch High Street. You’ll soon come across BoxPark, which is a group of tiny stores, each housing a local designer selling his or her goods.
At the end of BoxPark lies Brick Lane, which is one of London’s most iconic streets. On Sunday’s, you’ll find lots of stalls with traders selling all kinds of products from second-hand clothes to jewelry and gifts. Towards the end of Brick Lane lies Spitalfields Market, one of London’s most popular markets where you’ll find independent traders along with a selection of boutique restaurants and cafes.
