Old Spitalfields Market – The Perfect Destination for a Mr Thirty-Something

If you’re familiar with East London, you’re probably familiar with Old Spitalfields Market – but have you really been acquainted? after years of living East, I thought I properly had until I took an in-depth tour of the market to truly discover what makes Old Spitalfields Market such an iconic London shopping destination.

Nestled between Liverpool Street station and Brick Lane, the historic market features a mix of internationally reconsided brands such as Chanel, Jigsaw, Bobbi Brown and Tiger, as well as a plethora of stalls offering handmade, antique and artsy goods. And for once the shopping is all done, Old Spitalfields Market offers a broad range of restaurants and bars to cater to all tastes, including Healthy, American, Seafood and Greek.

Old Spitalfields Market certainly is the perfect destination for the discerning man and here’s why…
