Create an itinerary including Old Spitalfields Market
There has been a market on the site of Old Spitalfields Market since 1638, when King Charles I gave a license for flesh, fowl, and roots to be sold there. Today, Old Spitalfields is one of London’s top markets, offering antiques, clothes, organic food, artwork, and vinyl records. It’s particularly recognized as a place for young designers to showcase their work, and is considered very fashionable. As it’s a covered market, you don’t need to worry about rain. Once you’ve worked up an appetite from shopping, visit one of the stalls selling food, or one of the restaurants and cafes also in the covered area.

  • A handful of brilliant original clothing and other goods with a plethora of mass manufactured products. One side of the market all but mirrors the other. Good place to grab a bite.
  • Lots of cuisine options - all fresh and some of them really cheap as well! Good atmosphere during week days. Photo from the Ethiopian Vegan place there!
