Insta Shopping On Columbia Road

Columbia Road is more than a flower market

London 1 day 4 stops 4.3 hours 802

ABOUT THIS TRAIL

Just spitting distance from the city, Columbia Road is home to a world famous flower market as well as a whole host of interesting gift shops, art suppliers and galleries. In the last few years, hipster hangouts have sprung up from nearby Hoxton and Shoreditch so that eating out here or grabbing a drink is a bit more interesting than the usual chain restaurants that often appear in busy, and expensive, parts of town. It's a great destination when you want to get away from the usual tourist routes, but if you want to visit when the market is on itself, make sure you go early - it gets incredibly busy, especially in the Summer and Christmas season.
