We've never seen such an amazing range of flowers … colours and varieties. There were cut flowers (the sunflowers were huge), shrubs, succulents, ornamental brassicas ... the list goes on. Go early to see the best range.

A very nice place to enjoy Sunday out with friends. Full of cafes and cool shops around the flower market! It becomes really crowded in the afternoon, but still worth it!

What I should have said is that it is not the flower market, it is the shops that are on Columbia Road. There was someone selling Christmas trees.
