Why locals recommend it
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.

An East London must-do on a Sunday - go early to avoid the crowds! Lots of sweet coffee shops and things to buy.

Must see. East London’s vibrant Sunday flower market is a local favourite. Here, you can barter with market stall merchants for everything from houseplants and fresh bouquets to succulents and seeds. Columbia Road is well worth a visit from Monday to Saturday, too: the lack of Sunday crowds leaves…

Famous flower market around 15 mins walk. Walk down broadway market and continue going to the end. Only open Sundays and gets VERY busy!

One of the busiest but prettiest things to do in London. Only on Sundays. Get there early. Lots to eat, drink and see roundabouts.
