There’s no more colourful way to shop in London than by sampling its many markets. For those that take food seriously, all corners of the capital boast their own farmers’ markets, bringing locally grown produce to the table, while specialised markets like Columbia Road’s famous flower market packs a Victorian cobbled street with bargain blooms every Sunday.
As well as these more fashionable fairs, the capital has stubbornly retained many of its authentic ‘Albert Square’ style markets, selling no nonsense fruit and veg, bric-à-brac and cheap clothing. Here’s our comprehensive guide to the capital’s food, fashion and furniture markets.

This shop-cum-gaming space comes from Fnatic, a leading esports organisation with professional teams competing in video games competitions across the world. Confused? Well, attempting to turn esports a bit more mainstream is one of the reasons why they've set up Bunkr. You can purchase branded merchandise (from clothing to computer hardware), games set up for visitors to play and there's a virtual reality system in store too, plus presumably loads of info on the brand and what they're up to. You can also hire the whole place out for private events, whereby they'll open up the on-site bar for you and your group.
Venue says: “We are London's first ever esports concept store! Come over and shop, hang out, game, use virtual reality and discover esports!”
