Columbia Road

Peonies, anyone? Or jasmine or lemon trees or Easter cactus. Columbia Road Flower Market in London’s East End is quite an experience if you haven’t been. Definitely the place to be on Sunday to buy flowers, listen to sidewalk musicians, nibble on oysters. Go early to avoid the packed crowds, or go late to get the 3-plants-for-£5 deals. If you’re indecisive because you love all flora like we do, make a plan and a budget beforehand, it’s much easier and will save you time in the people-traffic-jam that is the flower market—time well spent drinking a second bloody mary.
