The many markets of London are splashed with countless things of interest, which to the consumer is a fascinating notion. Tracking through the streets of brick lane and surrounding areas,the streets are packed with street art, inspired photographers, icons of style, tourists and Londoners. It's not a petite affair - it’s a mass market with many stalls filled with the hustle and bustle of excitement. Welcome to Tower Hamlets home to the mighty Brick Lane! Regular markets include The Sunday-Up Market, Tea Rooms, The Backyard Market, The Vintage Market and the Boiler House as well as street sellers all the way up Brick Lane.
It's very easy to visit all that the area has to offer in one day. We suggest that you start at Spitalfields and work your way over to Brick Lane after. You will come across fashion in many shapes forms and sizes. Velo-Re is a fine example.
You'll also find the hugely popular Embassy Shoes. Beautifully crafted shoes from Lithuania. We love their collection of winter boots! Vintage is vast amongst the stalls within the backyard market and the Sunday up market.
The markets and surrounding areas are intriguing and packed with unique items of interest. From clothing, to Mexican wrestler masks, Brick Lane captures it all! If you're an antiques fan, The Tea Rooms is just the place for you. You'll find it just before the Backyard Market.
If dainty china turns you on, Plant and Plant may rock your world! We also love Vintage Bus Blinds for a taste of London.
For supporters there are many stalls of interest. NARCISSUS DESIGN (pictured above) is a design stall specialising in custom-made mirrors, furniture finishes and handmade gilt wallpaper.
We know that you're going to get hungry, that's a given with all the succulent aromas everywhere. Brick Lane is London's curry capital, but save that for the evening! The Brick Lane Boiler House is home to a whole court of food stalls from around the world.
LA PIADINA PRONTA: Italian food made simple (Italian flat bread) with the best ingredients. The best of Italy brought to you.
And if you're lucky enough to save yourself until you hit the top of Brick Lane, MR SPICY will be waiting for you, with his "Smokin" Caribbean Food.
