There are more than 100 markets in London and they offer everything from food, to fashion to antiques and much more. So, they really do have to be on your to do list while you are here! Here is our guide to some of the best ones!

Camden Market

Camden LockSo we start with the best and most popular market in London and no we are not biased! Not far from Tti School you can find Camden Market, which offers plenty of street food, a variety of retail shops and a lot of pubs nearby. You could spend a whole day in the former stables and enjoy exotic food or look for some treasures in one of the over 100 stalls. And did you know that the famous singer Amy Winehouse worked on a stall in Camden Lock Market when she was a teenager?

Leadenhall Market

LeadenhallMarketLeadenhall Market was build in the 14th Century and primarily sells fresh food, but it offers also a number of shops and what is even more important an amazing architecture. The old-fashioned and ornate roof and walls create a literally enchanting atmosphere. As some scenes of Harry Potter have been filmed in front of Leadenhall Market so it is a must see for every fan.

Closest tube station: Bank and Monument

Old Spitalfields Market

Portobello Road Market

Covent Garden Market
