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.

  • Great vibe. Mainly covered so good on a rainy day! Very clean. Has some nice stalls, very hip and authentic rather than cheap junk like some markets. Nice choice of eateries too.
