With the series of markets in the city of London, you can be sure that you’ll find everything you’re looking for. Some of the best markets in the city include Brick Lane Market, Covent Garden Market, Portobello market, and of course Camden market.
They are usually open on weekends and are visited more so on a Sunday. If you’re looking for a way to understand a city’s culture, going to the city’s supermarkets isn’t going to do you any favours. But the markets in the city give you a unique shopping experience combined with an insight into how the locals live.
The Shaftesbury Hyde Park International is one of the most prominent Kensington London hotels the city has to offer. With its location, guests can conveniently trek to the previously mentioned markets, and they’re all within just less than an hour away by tube, and some are just half an hour away.
While going to a market is perhaps the last thing that’s on a new traveller’s mind when they visit a city, we recommend it wholeheartedly for several reasons. Firstly, it’s possibly the most underrated way to find novel souvenirs to bring back home. Secondly, you’ll get a better feel for the atmosphere of the town you’re in. Last but not least, you’ll add a little variety to your trip.
Markets over the years have dropped in popularity, with supermarkets dominating the sector. Nevertheless, the old school feel of London’s markets is still very much alive. So if you’re after a unique and memorable London experience, be sure to add some spice to your trip by mixing different kinds of attractions. Whether its museums, markets or adrenaline-fuelled experiences – create your unique combination of sights and attractions so as to best serve your inclinations.
Book your stay in London this season, and discover the incredible variety of markets in the city first hand. For an excellent, affordable luxury accommodation consider the Shaftesbury Hyde Park or any one of the numbers of Kensington London hotels. In the end, you’ll be glad you did.
