Old Spitalfields Market

Get rummaging at one of the most popular markets in London.

With a diverse and quirky range of offerings, you can find almost anything, from classic cameras to vintage clothing and stuffed toys.

Meanwhile, be sure to sample some of the scrumptious snacks available on the street.


If you fancy a bit of high-end shopping, head over to Boxpark, which is home to Kiehl's, Gap and Decorum.

Having opened its doors in 2011, it was the world's first pop-up mall. Combining the street food market vibe with some of the world's most popular brands, it has been a unique shopping destination ever since.

Grab some second-hand wares, stuff your face with delicious, authentic cuisine and enjoy something different.

Here you'll see goats, donkeys and pigs, and can even enjoy a spot of gardening.

Dennis Severs House

Travel back in time to the eighteenth century at this incredible living time capsule.

The building itself is a Grade II listed Georgian terrace house. Dennis, who lived there from 1979 until 1999, gradually refashioned the ten rooms in the style of former centuries.

Dennis Severs House is now preserved as a museum, following the lives of a family of Huguenot silk weavers.

Backyard Market

Hosted at the Old Truman Brewery, this market is specially designed for arts and crafts created by young designers.

Opened in 2006, Backyard Market was the first of its kind to open on Saturdays in the area. It's now become the hottest place to shop for bespoke prints, jewellery and accessories.
