Had a wonderful time wandering through the streets of the Sunday Market- it was incredibly lively and jam-packed. Loads of wonderful smelling street food and some interesting stalls to browse. Would definitely recommend grabbing yourself a salt beef bagle whilst you are there.

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
