About
CLOCKTOWER ANTIQUES MARKETThis quirky weekend market has been around for over 30 years, and has 50 stalls, specialising in vintage, retro and antiques, with a few contemporary craft stalls thrown into the mix.Due to the one-off nature of the merchandise, every day is different, but you'll find vintage clothing, old and new jewellery, books, records, antique furniture and all kinds of collectables. With merchandise spanning 3 centuries, it's a great place to buy a piece of history in historic Greenwich.A 2 minute walk from Greenwich Market, the Clocktower Market is at 166 Greenwich High Road, next to the Greenwich Picturehouse. Opening hours are 10am till 4pm. The manager, Jane Dent, can be contacted on 020 7237 2001

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Greenwich
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.

Disappointed in this market...it used to be so good. Now it is mainly crafts or garage sale items...not worth a visit anymore.

Sweet little market

Greenwich is full of sweet surprises and the Clocktower Market is definitely one of them.

Full of characters and interesting items on sell.

Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.

A lovely market that seemed a mixture of items of collectors interest and jewlery. People a little eccentric.

In the shadow of Clock Tower
Jun 2017 • Couples
An open air market stalls destination with about 40 odd stalls. There's no theme and the goods are varied in quality. The stall operators seem to be occupied with communal dialogue than welcoming visitors. Nothing memorable about this place.

One of the most interesting in London.

Greenwich at the weekend is famous for it's various markets. The Clocktower is my favourite. It's a mix of vintage clothes, vinyl records, jewellery, small items of furniture, and other assorted curios and memorabilia. There seems to be a core of regular traders, and a selection of others who trade occasionally. This keeps it interesting and fresh. Prices are very reasonable, and the stall-holders are a cheerful and knowledgeable bunch. It's open both Saturday and Sunday all year round. Well worth a visit.

Small but perfectly formed
Apr 2016
Luckily we came to Greenwich by train, which meant we stumbled across this small, quirky, friendly market. Because it's small (60 stalls, at a guess), it has the feeling of being crammed with treasures. OK, they're not all treasures. Some of the stuff there is modern but second hand (maybe people having a clear out?). I actually like that eclectic mix of 'precious' and more everyday stuff. I came away with a 1950s dress and a modern IKEA-type lampshade. Despite being bustling it was also a peaceful place (I was glad to hear no loud pop music). There's a quite upmarket restaurant with a paved area next to the market where you can get a pot of tea at a reasonable price. My friend and I enjoyed sitting there and showing each other our 'treasures'. A lovely market, and the stallholders are super-friendly too.

A bit hidden, but worth looking for
Apr 2016 • Family
We stumbled upon this market by chance, it's a bit hidden. A man was holding a sign pointing to it. It's not huge, but we found it completely fascinating. The stallholders are so friendly - one of them gave my daughter a tiny doll as a present. We bought a few things too, including an antique razor, with blades and still perfectly serviceable, for £6 (a couple of days later, we were in a shop in a posh part of town - Bond Street - and saw a very similar item for £100). I also bought a vintage scarf and necklace, and had to be dragged away by my husband after an hour. We then sat on the patio of the restaurant next to the market and continued to soak up the atmosphere. A highlight of our trip to London.

It was our visit to this market. It was very cold which was probably the reason there were not too many stall holders but the cheerfulness and friendliness of the stall holders made it all worth while. We purchased some lovely items. Its worth a visit.
