Cool Local Markets to Visit in London tourismus

Everybody knows about Borough Market but there's a lot of lesser known markets here in London that will give you not only a full stomach and maybe some souvenirs but just make you feel like you're a proper local londoner. Brixton Market covers a few nearby areas including Market row and Brixton Village, as well as Electric Avenue, Pokes Road and more. And a lot of these areas are all covered so you can enjoy them any time of the year. You'll find stalls and shops here any day of the week with about 80 traders on most of the time and you can find a huge variety of food options as well as a pretty interesting mix of different products for sale.

Leather Lane Market is only open at lunchtime during the week from around 10 a.m.. to 2 p.m., but the vendors usually open up more around noon. Clothing and accessories are sold at some of the stalls here but the real draw is the food, I used to have a client around here that I used to work at their office and man, I had some really delicious lunches from here. Two of my favourite options include Kin which has a take away time meal deal for just 6 pounds and there's two options one for vegetarian and one for meat, And Tikka Rito, which called itself healthy Indian get a wrap with my personal favorite paneer cheese in it. Here is a secret local tip if you need a spot to sit and eat your meal, head to Grayson square nearby, it's tough to find so I put it marked off on 'The Local Guide To London's' map which i'll talk about in a little bit.

On Saturdays and Sundays Flat Iron Square which is a cool little area any day of the week really post flea which is a funky little flea market with all types of stuff for sale most of its used vintage, really interesting stuff to check out, so have a browse through everything on a Saturday or Sunday and when you're done shopping there are plenty of food and drink options around for you to check out.

Remember that all the spots mentioned in this video are marked off on The Local Guide To London's digital map so you can navigate to one of them wherever you're coming from or you can find out what else is in there to check out after you're finished stuffing your face. You can find out more about that by clicking the card popping up over here somewhere.

Tips for traveling to London

Buy the Oyster Card for the metropolitan transport of London: it is a pre-paid card that is used for the metro, buses and railways of the city on the best rate.

Book the hotel well in advance: the hotels in London are generally old, bad and expensive. The longer you wait to book, the more likely it is that a badly located or inconvenient hotel will touch you.

Visit the Borough Market on Thursday or Friday. On Saturdays it becomes really unbearable..

Match the trip with the first Thursday of the month: it's Firts Thursday, the night the galleries open exhibitions and open their doors to the public for free.
