Time Out says

London’s biggest antiques arcade with four floors to lose yourself in.

Housed in a huge Egyptian-style art-deco building that used to be Jordan’s department store, Alfies Antiques Market, which was founded more than 40 years ago by Bennie Gray of Gray’s Antiques Market in Mayfair, has been one of London’s premier destinations for collectors, dealers, celebs and bargain hunters on a mission to uncover unique and genuine antiques and vintage items.

Across 35,000 sq ft and four floors, this Marylebone establishment is home to around 100 dealers selling antique furniture, retro clothing,  jewellery, memorabilia, homeware and decorations. Dodo Posters, run by Liz Farrow since the 1960s, sells vintage advertising and movie posters, while Diplomat Treasures International offers a mix of twentieth-century furniture, African carvings, Chinese vases and modern art. Everything feels carefully curated, and this is reflected in the prices, but if you’re serious about picking up a one-of-a-kind item, this huge antiques arcade is hard to beat.

Alfies Antiques Market also has a rooftop kitchen and café – a hidden oasis that basks in sunlight for most of the day. Pop up for brunch, a burger, afternoon tea or a celebratory glass of prosecco after you’ve nabbed that 1930s light fitting you’ve always wanted but could never find.

Top tip: Many of the surrounding shops on Church Street also specialise in twentieth-century antiques and collectables, high-end art and decorations. Alim Kheraj

I go here regularly for interior inspiration for my job as it showcases so many eras of beautiful craftsmanship. The dangerous issue is that everything is for sale and it's easy to fall in love with all the characterful treasures lost and found. If you are looking for an antique or a gift or just want to be surrounded by amazing objet make a trip to Alfies for sure, there's nowhere else like it.

WOW - what an absolutely stunning place - I can't believe I've never been here and I'm really looking forward to going back again soon. Not only is it a mecca of fantastic treasures, from fun trinkets under a tenner right through to jewels in their thousands. Unlike a vintage market or car-boot, this place has real antiques and their sellers are experts in their area. As a result, you won't pick up a bargain here, but you will pick up something beautiful, so if you've a budget to decorate your home or your person, you'll do well to visit. 


You of course are also well within your rights to simply browse and just dream of buying an 18th century Italian set of drawers or an antique, solid gold, with encrusted sapphires, necklace from the 1920s - like I did. And because the building itself is such fun to explore (there's a full-on pond inside!) with a fantastic roof terraced restaurant at the top, you can make it an outing. Enjoy, take a wad of cash, if you can, and spoil yourself with something unique.
