London Market full day private Tour
Londonâ€™s street markets are amongst the finest and most eclectic in Europe from the boho chic of the world famous Portobello market to the smorgasbord of culinary delights to be encountered at Borough Market, to the Rock N Roll enthused Camden Market, all tastes are catered for. The roots of many of the modern London street markets date back to the middle ages, so a visit to an outdoor London market makes for not only a fun shopping trip, but also a fascinating cultural and historical experience as well. If you are looking for clothing, housewares, crafts, antiques, vintage finds, food, or just about anything else you can imagine,
Day 1 : Borough Market. Nestled next to London Bridge, this iconic food market has existed in some form since at least 1014. Though it still operates as a wholesale market in the early hours, itâ€™s now best known as a foodieâ€™s paradise where discerning Londoners come to buy top-quality meats, fish, fruit and veg, fresh-baked bread, cakes and sweet treats, oils and vinegars, and pretty much anything else they desireOld Spitalfields Market, following its noughties rejuvenation, this covered market opposite Liverpool Street station has blossomed into a major shopping destination. Now open seven days a week, the central concourse is filled with stalls selling contemporary and vintage clothes, bespoke childrenâ€™s toys, home items and artisan food products. Inside, youâ€™ll also find a decent selection of permanent retail outlets DurationCamden Market, technically several adjoining markets, this sprawl of stalls stretching from Camden Town tube to the Regentâ€™s Canal is Londonâ€™s fourth most popular visitor attraction. Every week, around 250,000 people come here to shop, sample street food and soak up the distinctive, still-grungy atmosphere. Camden Lock Market is an arts-and-crafts haven while the Stables Market is a trendy spot for everything from quirky furniture to fetish clothing. Nearby Buck Street Market on Camden High Street (the one under a sign that reads â€˜The Camden Marketâ€™) is best for T-shirts and touristy trinkets. The markets in Camden Town are open seven days a week and always seem to be buzzingThe worldâ€™s largest antiques market occupies a prime stretch of Notting Hill, an area that manages to feel diverse and surprising despite heavy gentrification (how Hugh Grant in that movie could afford a one-person flat share despite working in a bookshop is beyond us) in the â€™90s. Portobello Road Market is really five markets in one, with different sections dedicated to second-hand goods; clothing and fashion; household essentials; fruit, veg and other food; and the main event: antiques. Youâ€™ll find the greatest range of antiques stalls on Saturdays, when the market gets so busy that itâ€™s wise to arrive before 11am. Portobello buzzes on Fridays too, but this fascinating street packed with characterful cafÃ©s, shops and drinking spots is worth a visit any timeNew Covent Garden Market This grand neoclassical building in the heart of Covent Garden is a London landmark. Since 1980, after traffic congestion forced the traditional fruit-and-veg market to relocate, Covent Garden Market has reinvented itself as a serious shopping destination. On Mondays, itâ€™s filled with stalls selling antiques and collectables; then from Tuesday to Sunday, it welcomes a broader range of traders offering everything from handmade jewellery to artisan soaps. There are plenty of permanent retail units, too, mainly housing fancy brands like Mulberry and Tom Ford. Once youâ€™re done exploring, which could honestly take hours, Jubilee Market across the piazza is great for gifts and trinkets
