The new East London line puts us into contact with great places in London you’d rarely have visited a few months ago before the line opened. So if you’re looking for something to do on a spare Sunday morning, why not visit Columbia Road Flower market – close to Hoxton station on the East London line?
Open from 8am-2pm every Sunday, the market has over 50 flower stalls selling plants and flowers at unbelieveable bargain prices (leave it until near closing time and you’ll get even better prices!). And Columbia Road and the adjoining streets are packed with interesting boutiques, art galleries, vintage clothes shops and the like.
Hackney City Farm with the wonderful Cafe Frizzante is just along the road.
