Flea Markets in London: A Complete Guide to Brick Lane Market

30 seconds read: Pros and Cons of the Brick Lane Market(s)

By now you should have a pretty clear idea of what Brick Lane’s market has in stock. But in case you only have 30 seconds ahead of you to get the big picture, we’ve wrapped up our review for you in 8 Pros & Cons:

Pros of Brick Lane Flea Market

  • A vibrant and authentic atmosphere, perfect for a Sunday morning stroll!
  • A huge range of quirky clothes and accessories, and delicious, inexpensive global street food
  • A very different ‘alternative’ scene to the one you find at the Camden flea market
  • Easy to get there by bus or underground (Aldgate East or Overground to Shoreditch High Street)

Cons of Brick Lane Flea Market

  • Do not expect to find the most “exclusive” design & vintage items (except for clothes) at Brick Lane
  • Brick Lane is still a flea market, but it is most famous for its street food from around the world
  • The place is really quiet on midweek
  • Not as good as Old Spitalfields flea market but far better than Petticoat Lane flea market
