A nice outing to what is a flower market for tourists. Lovely little shops & very animated flower traders that create an East London feeling. All kinds of lovely flowers are available. Better than spending an afternoon at the cinema. Don't expect any bargains though.

Lots of beautiful well known and lesser known blooms and potted plants. Really good quality flowers at great reasonable prices.

What I should have said is that it is not the flower market, it is the shops that are on Columbia Road. There was someone selling Christmas trees.
