Columbia Road Flower Market
A Sunday morning in London is well spent at the Columbia Road Flower Market. Every week, come whatever weather, the market stalls open along the street selling seasonal blooms. Locals come out with their dogs and expertly navigate their way through the crowds for their weekly bouquets. Tourists who venture into the neighbourhood get a little lost among the hustle and bustle of the place, snap happy on the most photogenic of streets.
Wander down Columbia Road, enjoy the sweet floral smells of hyacinths, roses and lilies, while shouts of "Three fer a fivah!" fill your hears as you hand pick bunches of flowers. Grab a coffee in a cafe either end of the stretch of stalls and meander through the antique and vintage shops while you're in the area.
