One of the icon's of London. A must see for any tourist or Londoner. It's a very very long road with different sections from Antique, to clothing to food.

There are also shops running along the street with interesting things to purchase....more
Great market! Loads of cool things to collect. It is different everyday. Saturday has a great Ghanian food stall which was delish!!! They have a vegetarian option which i got. I also bought a great bonber jacket from this market.

An extremely long/big market that you should definitely visit!
Don't be fooled by the seemingly boring entrances! Once you get pass a street or two you will realise this market has lots to offer and almost look like it never ends!
I found the best Viet food I've had in London here!!more

You'll find all manner of merchandise for sale, some...more
