This short break is the ideal way to start your Christmas shopping. Find truly unique gifts, and hopefully some bargains along the way – from modern art to antiques, vintage to designer clothes – and unusual items you wouldn’t necessarily find on the high street these well-known markets have something for everyone.
HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR STAY:
Day 1 – We travel to London’s Portobello Road, home to one of the World’s best known street markets selling the World’s largest collection of antiques and bric-a-brac stalls. The market has over 1,000 dealers selling every kind of antique and collectible and if you like shopping without knowing exactly what you’ll find then you’ll love Portobello Road.
Day 2 – After breakfast we enjoy a journey to Covent Garden, home to another one of London’s famous markets. Housed in and around the iconic Market Building and Piazzas, Covent Garden is an architectural masterpiece. Along with speciality shops, restaurants and cafés you’ll come across street performers amongst the gorgeous craft, antiques and jewellery on offer. After a couple of hours here to explore we begin our journey home.
