A day out at Spitalfields Market

Have you ever experienced Spitalfields before? If not, then you really have a treat in store.

There are always so many places to explore in London and most are steeped in history, such as this market.  It is home to many contemporary brands and you’ll find innovative street food sellers galore that will keep you busy for many hours. As well as being popular because of what it offers, it’s also ideally situated between areas where you’ll have so much to do.

Spitalfields is well known for its covered market and is situated just off Liverpool Street in the heart of the East End.

If you’re bored of the same old high street shops, then you will find designers and artists selling various fashion, homewares and accessories, including vintage and antique clothing, furniture and other truly unique finds.

It has lots of restaurants and fashion stores that you’ll know about, as well as some quirkier boutiques and more unusual market stalls.There is a rotating range of markets throughout the week, ranging from funky clothing to unique jewellery – so there is always something new to find.

When shopping, buying food comes hand in hand and you’ll never be short of places to get food and maybe try something new.

The Backyard Market and nearby Sunday Market feature all things arts and crafts and the Boiler House Food Hall has stalls selling food from all over the world. Not to mention the famous curry houses on nearby Brick Lane.

If you plan to visit, make sure that you set a day aside to wander around, so that you can really enjoy the experience and soak up the atmosphere. There is an Instagrammable backdrop at every opportunity and lots of colourful buildings around the area, should you want to document your visit – like me.

Spitalfields is one of London’s favourite and most vibrant areas all based around a cobbled market. I think you could find pretty much anything here…
