Sunday morning walk? Rise and shine on a Sunday morning from 8am to 2pm and visit the flower market, which is bustling with buskers, boutique shops, all sorts of flowers, herbs and plants from bamboos to pansies, you are guaranteed to start sneezing if you’ve got hay fever.
Behind and around the stalls you will find individual shops with quirky products and displays. I love this market because it feels like you have found a hidden gem of colours and excitement in the relatively grey Shoreditch area. Walking through the flower stalls you really get the feeling that you are Hugh Grant in Notting Hill! It’s only a 15-minute walk from the top of Brick Lane or Old Street station.
