- Greenwich Market

Time Out says

A historic south London market that specialises in antiques and arts and crafts.

If Greenwich Market looks familiar, it could be because you’ve seen Lord Sugar’s lackeys scanning its stalls for random items like skeletons and old coins during the ever-popular ‘buying task’ on ‘The Apprentice’. But this historic eighteenth-century market – London’s only one set in a World Heritage Site – is definitely worth perusing in a more leisurely fashion.

Open seven days a week from 10am-5.30pm, and situated in the heart of charming Greenwich, this large indoor market houses around 120 stalls selling jewellery, clothes, second-hand furniture, unusual gifts and general bric-à-brac. Go on Tuesday and Thursday for a greater number of antiques stalls, or any other day for an arts and crafts focus. The market is surrounded by a range of independent stores and fashion chains, so if you’re in the mood to treat yourself you won’t be disappointed.

Greenwich Market has a lot to browse, but there’s no need to worry about hunger cramping your haggling style. On any given day you’ll find around 40 food and drink stalls selling street bites, sweet treats and artisan sarnies.

Top tip: Make a day of it by travelling to Greenwich on a Thames riverboat and pay a visit to the nearby Cutty Sark, Royal Observatory or National Maritime Museum. Nick Levine
