Whether it’s mid-century modern chairs you want, or you’re after a vintage hat, London has thrived on selling second-hand merchandise and vintage fashion for decades. Here are our favourite places to have a good old rummage.

Old Spitalfields Market

Market
Add to Trip
Although Old Spitalfields Market is open daily, Thursday is antiques day. There are stalls that flog a mix of everything and ones that have particular focus on one type of antique, such as taxidermy or medals. There are often themed markets, as well, at weekends in second-hand vinyl or vintage clothes.

Portobello Road Market

Portobello Road is perhaps London’s most famous second-hand market, with traders lining the long street in Notting Hill every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Here, locals and tourists mingle to find antique and vintage bargains. There’s been a market here for more than 200 years, but it only became famous for second-hand wears after World War II.

Greenwich Market

Market

Greenwich has a vintage and second-hand market every weekend. It’s separate to the food and craft market that’s opposite the Cutty Sark, tucked away on a smaller street around the corner. Here, East End banter fills the air between stalls while you pick up the odd bargain.
