The Jubilee Market

London's Famous Jubilee Market at Covent Garden. A traditional market at the heart of London's West End renowned for Antiques, Arts, Crafts, Gifts and Food.

This market is a real gem and we spent a bit of time here tasting and savouring the atmosphere. The Market stalls really do entice you and we ended up tasting lots of different foods from around the country and the world, from traditional English, Indian and Chinese to Jamaican and Italian food.

We went to the Arts & Crafts Market, the Saturday Market, that allows the creative traders to display a wide range of skills and products. The Market Stalls are interesting and display unique and novel goods. At the Saturday market you can find arts and crafts covering everything from candles and hand painted items through to jewellery, paintings, calligraphy and clocks.

The Market is within walking distance of other London attractions including Covent Garden, Tower BridgeThe Tate Modern, The London Eye, Nelson’s Column inTrafalgar Square and Borough Market (which is only a very short walk away).

From the moment you arrive you are caught up in the hustle and bustle of such diverse products, this is the place to be if you fancy something off the tourist track, especially on a Saturday when there is a real relaxed feel.
