Flowers on Columbia


Flowers on Columbia

A historic street filled with the sweet smell of horticulture

Location: Hackney, Tower Hamlets, E2 7RG

Description: Every Sunday this historic street fills with a bright patchwork of hundreds of flower stalls.

Columbia Road is the capital's most colourful and perhaps the most sweet-smelling market. Flowers, shrubs, bedding plants and other horticultural delights are all for sale. As well as cut flowers, there are topiary trees, pot plants, hanging baskets, bulbs and bouquets turning the street to blossom.

The 52 stalls and surrounding shops sell everything to cater for that English obsession - gardening. With most of the traders being based in Essex, many of the plants and flowers are grown and produced locally.

The market is open from 8am to 2pm and there are plenty of attractive cafes, pubs and authentic sea-food stalls where you can make a pit-stop.

You'll smell it before you see it.
