Why locals recommend it
I love going to see the gorgeous flowers in an array of colours, and to feel the bustling vibe. There is often live music, and couples and families strolling around. You always see people around east London with flowers wrapped in brown paper and you know they’ve been to Columbia Road. The street is also full of independent shops full of creativity. They start setting up at 4 am and open at 8 am, though I’ve never made it there before 12 noon.

Sunday flower market. It's a unique scene, chaotic, busy and charming. Have a walk around, resist the temptation to buy all flowers and then have a drink somewhere nearby.

Take an overground train from Norwood Junction to the famous flower market. Go early enjoy the market, buy cheap but amazing flowers and soak up the atmosphere. There's lots of great cafes for breakfast, brunch or coffees.

A Sunday flower market, absolutely amazing prices for fresh flowers! Be sure to get there early to get the best crop! Or, you could go later on in the day before they close to get the best prices, they usually lower prices closer to closing time. Top tip: try not to take too much baggage with you,…
