England

Rummage for gold! London’s best vintage markets

By Anita Draycott

Shopping in Britain is fun – and there’s nothing better than rummaging for treasures at a vintage market. Some of Britain’s best-dressed stars – including Kate Moss and Florence Welch – are known for their signature vintage style, but it needn’t break the bank. Here’s where to bag a bargain in London.

East London favourite Old Spitalfields Market has a weekly antiques market, and Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair makes a monthly appearance (www.spitalfields.co.uk). Popular with the East End’s cool crowd, Broadway Market is great for vintage dresses and retro

Frock Me! in Chelsea, central London, is one of London’s original fairs known for its vintage gems and celebrity fans, including Kylie Minogue (www.frockmevintagefashion.com). Portobello Road Market in west London’s Notting Hill is extremely popular, but the real treasures are found on weekdays. www.portobelloroad.co.uk

Camden Passage Market in north London is a bustling antiques village with a range of arcades and shops (www.camdenpassageislington.co.uk). Nearby Camden Lock Market is known for its sprawling street culture. www.camdenlockmarket.com

Capital Car Boot in Pimlico, South West London, is popular for its quality vintage clothing. www.capitalcarboot.com
