Columbia Road Flower Market

Columbia Road is the East End's famous plants and flower market and is just a short walk from Brick Lane Market. On Sunday, this tiny street is transformed into a blaze of colour when plants and flowers fill the area come rain or shine.  Locals and tourists alike are drawn to this bustling market where the majority of the flower sellers grow their own plants and others import their flowers in from around the world.

If, however, the sight of thousands of flowers and exotic plants in full bloom don't capture your interest, one of the sixty independent shops is bound to. Small art galleries sit next to antique shops, vintage clothes stores and even quaint little cupcake shops. There are also plenty of places to eat nearby including seafood, English breakfast and Spanish tapas.
