Covent Garden Antiques Market, London

Every Monday morning - throughout the year - Covent Garden in London, is a bustling antiques market. Thankfully, its undercover too!

A variety of stall holders appear from goodness knows where, empty their cars and spread their wares across tables for us all to gaze upon with delight. You will find all sorts here - glassware, silverware, ceramics, furniture, collectables of every kind, vintage clothing, paintings, leather luggage - its all here!

Being a central London market, prices are not the cheapest, but there is always a bargain to be had and most dealers are very friendly and prepared to haggle to a fair price. Get there early!

Its easy peasy to get to - Covent Garden tube station is a stones throw and every time I go, I always manage to find a parking space for the car either in Tavistock St. or neighbouring roads.

Covent Garden itself is home to an abundance of cafes and bistro's so you won't go wanting in the nourishment department either!

So, well worth a look if you are in London on a Monday morning - or to be honest, its worth travelling to anyway. Some real characters and always lots of fresh stock to view. And... with the atractions of London on its doorstep, what are you waiting for?!
