Columbia Road Flower Market

Is there anything better than sunshine and flowers?

Columbia Road Flower Market is the place to be in East London on a Sunday. The street comes alive with an endless stream of florists and the crowd packs itself in, all in search of the perfect bunch. From teeny tiny succulents, to enormous house plants and romantic blooms, they have everything – and all at incredible prices!

The market absolutely bursts with atmosphere, with stall holders crying their wares as you squeeze through to grab the best bunch. The street also has some amazing independent shops, with plenty of gardening tools, home accessories, artwork and cafes to keep you busy once you’ve found your blooms. And all of this in the sunshine makes for a pretty perfect Sunday.

    Wow, this looks amazingly colorful. The Netherlands are tulip country and you do see a lot of flowers on our local saturday market, but I wish I could go see London’s markets in real-life, not just on screen. Well, I keep on dreaming (and you please keep on posting such pretty pictures 🙂

      I’m sure you’ll be here one day to admire the markets yourself! The tulips must look incredible in the Netherlands when they are all in bloom, nothing like we have here! Thanks so much for reading 🙂 x

        I hope I will. I just went to several markets today and tulip season just started. I even got one as a gift, woehoe. It’s sitting on my table bringing a little spring to my room 🙂
