Columbia Road flower market

[vc_row row_type=”row” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” video=”” css_animation=””][vc_column][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1504900110204{padding-bottom: 30px !important;}”]Before travelling to London I had seen so many beautiful photos of Columbia Road flower market on my Instagram feed, so I knew that I’d have to visit whilst I was down there for Blogtacular. I did my research about how to get there and got up bright and early (well, early!) to get there for 8am. Most people seem to go really early if you’re looking to take some photos, or later in the afternoon if you want to grab a bargain! As I was going to be travelling back on the Monday I couldn’t actually buy anything (sadly) so I took rather a lot of photos instead to try to make up for it.


It was really difficult to decide which of my photos to include here, and this explains why it’s quite a large gallery! The colours were just amazing, and people bought so many things. I managed to snap a few customers and their purchases – I hope they enjoyed their flowers![/vc_column_text][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”7769,7770,7771,7772,7773,7774,7776,7775,7777,7778,7779,7780,7781,7782,7783,7784,7785,7786,7787,7788,7789,7790,7791,7792,7793,7794,7795,7796,7797,7798,7799,7800,7801,7802,7803,7804,7805,7806,7807,7808,7809,7810,7811,7812,7813,7814,7815,7816,7817,7818,7819,7820″ img_size=”large” column_number=”2″ grayscale=”no”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1435830709681{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 30px !important;}”]What I can’t convey through my blog post was the amazing smell of the flowers – it was just incredible! 🙂 It really is something that you have to go and experience for yourself. If you’re in London and are looking for something to do on a Sunday morning then I’d highly recommend visiting this wonderful market.

Have a great weekend, what ever you’re doing![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

    What an amazing place, isn’t it? We were there back in March while we were on vacation in the UK. My daughter and I REALLY wanted to walk down a street filled with gorgeous blooms and Columbia Road certainly does this! So many colours, so many shapes – it’s hard to know where to look or what to photograph! I am your newest Bloglovin’ follower, XOXO Bronwyn
