  • Fun way to spend a Sunday. Generally the flowers are good quality and we'll priced. Just too busy!! And please don't bring a stroller... You'll regret it instantly!
  • Best to go early - around 10am - to be able to see the stalls and walk around. It gets very very busy around 12 and is really difficult to move. It gets better when they are about to close it - around 2 and 3pm - and some prices drop. I've been coming here for years and never get tired of it, the people, the gorgeous flowers and really good food and coffee around.
  • Whether for tourism, or you need good flower/plant bargains, or in search for a good vibe. East end at its best and most original. The neighborhood and people are also great
  • Fun, vibrant and pretty market. Only open Sundays. Some stalls even take card! Walk the length and wander around. There's some chilled pubs and coffee shops nearby.
  • Visiting this flower market is one of the most fun activities on a Sunday in East London. It's a bustling and active market with plenty of food, coffee and drinking options nearby. Lovely atmosphere and a real London experience.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
