BLEAK HOUSE GUIDES MAY | COLUMBIA ROAD TO SPITALFIELDS
An early Sunday morning stroll through three of London’s most famous and busiest markets. From Columbia Road to Brick Lane and Spitalfields, this area has been shaped by immigrant communites over the last four hundred years. Curry houses, Jewish bakeries and Huguenot weavers’ cottages make this part of London entirely unique and special.
The walk starts at Hoxton station and is best on a Sunday morning when the flower market is open. From here have brunch and while away the time until the shops open in the late morning. We suggest arriving at the flower market no later than 9.15 am to protect your sanity from the crowds.
