Old Spitalfields Market is a great destination for cheap goods that will keep you warm in the winter and dry when it's raining.

Old Spitalfields Market is one of London's finest Victorian market halls. It was built in 1876 and is located in the centre of London, just a short walk from both Liverpool Street and Aldgate East tube stations. This ideal geographic setting entices many travellers and working people to visit the market.

When you pass the main entrance, you feel like you're transported to Victorian times. The market sells unique clothes, handmade accessories, furniture and antiques.

Every day is a special day

The market is open seven days a week, with each day hosting a different type of market. Thursday's antique market and Friday's fashion market are particularly popular, attracting a lot of attention.

On Thursday, a huge collection including bowler hats, William Morris prints, antique chests, one-off grandfather clocks and 1960's smock dresses are on display. Friday is a perfect day to discover special artwork and fashion design that have that authentic London feel.

Shops in Old Spitalfields Market also sell leather bags, handmade bath soap, print t-shirts and handmade accessories. It is also an international market. African artwork, Mexican flower accessories, Chinese traditional clothing and Thai silk are sold here.

Around the market, some shops such as Traffic People, Collective Clothing and Dolly Dare specialise in trading vintage style clothes. Elemental, The Lollipop Shoppe and One Deco are artsy interior design shops.

Enjoy World Cuisine

Asian, African and European restaurants can be found in the market. Hot homemade bread, cakes and ice cream are some of the market's specialties.
