Columbia Road Christmas Wednesdays 2017

The evocative Victorian atmosphere of the street will be enhanced with festive lighting, Christmas trees and carols.

Home to some of the best independent shops in London, Columbia Road is a celebration of the diversity of small independent businesses that continue to give the East End its famous  character.

Here you will find a diverse and eclectic range of unique, individual products not to be found elsewhere, the perfect occasion to shop for beautiful, individual gifts without the stress of the high street.


 

Angela Flanders found her shop in the heart of the famous Sunday morning Flower Market at Columbia Road Shoreditch, in the spring of 1985. She set about to restore this perfect example of a Victorian shop to its original character and charm. Known for its world-famous Sunday flower market, Columbia Road is one of the few streets in the capital composed entirely of independent shops, which are usually only open on Sunday mornings.

The street is a treasure trove, offering a diverse and eclectic range of carefully sourced, individual products not to be found elsewhere. Choose from artisan jewelers and booksellers to gift shops and galleries, antiques and homewares, childrens shops, perfumery and fashion boutiques, as well as critically-acclaimed restaurants and pubs.

The philanthropic Baroness Angela Coutts originally built the shops on a watercress field as a Victorian shopping arcade over 150 years ago. Columbia Road retains a Dickensian atmosphere with cobbled streets, traditional shop fronts and Victorian street lamps. The street and surrounding area are frequently used as film and television locations due to its unique character.
