The most popular markt, but not know by everybody yet, is definitely Camden Market. This market is a mix of different cultures and colors. It's mostly visited during the weekend, and as it was a Bankholiday weekend, there were a lot of people ! But we enjoyed. Eating out is fun overthere because you have a choice of African, Turkish, Chines, Japanese, Spanish ... and only about 5 GBP a meal ! The shopping is all about alternative clothing, vintage, handicrafts ...
Next on our list was Old Spitalfieldsmarket. And ancient building renovated and filled with vintage and handicraft. Information on www.allinlondon.co.uk - also only opened on weekends for the stalls, the shops that are in the building are always open.
Last but no least on the list : Brick Lane Market ! Next to the most famous 'curryrestaurantsstreet' during the weekend this Lane is filled with stalls for vintage clothings, new designers, handicrafters, again international and exotic foodstalls ! We loved it !
We tasted Sri Lankan food, Thai, Falafel ... yummy !
A very very crowed British Museum where we tried to have a glimpse of old Minoan Jewelry.
Covent garden was on the list and strolling through Soho we found www.buffybeads.com a lovely gemstones-store ... where of course I couldn't resist !
We tried to visit Smithfieldsmarket to see where all the big chefs go get there superb ingredients, but we found it closed ! It opens up a 3 am ...
Ofcourse we wanted to see Portobello Road and Market again, but
we were late and they were closing down. Due maybe to the cold and wet weather on Sunday !
These where some of the highlights of our family trip to London.
