Lower Marsh is a rather shabby looking street located within spitting distance of the London eye, County Hall and Waterloo Station. However, it's a buzzing little street with a few surprises in store. At one end is Leake Street (often referred to as the Banksy Tunnel), which runs under the Waterloo train-lines. This is a graffiti haven, it's legal or at least allowed here. The graffiti changes almost daily and ranges from dodgy rubbish to brilliant works of art. Well worth a peep. Other attractions in Lower Marsh include a number of street food stall (ranging from great falafel wraps to superb goat curry), a small second hand book store, a superb high class 'supermarket' called Greensmiths which is full of stunning food and wine and a great cafe / restaurant. There is also a brilliant coffee shop called the Scooter Cafe which is full of scooter memorabilia. Well worth a look if you're in the area.

The food festival on London South Bank was a great mix of every type of street food from all over the world. Amazing curries - spicey noodles - immense burgers - great kebabs - lovely messy african lamb wraps - massive chocolate brownies - organic smoothies & some real cider to wash it all down. Shame it rained towards the end of the day but nothing dampened the spirit of all the traders offering their ware - well done guys - do it again soon - well worth the trip from sunny Southampton!!

I used to work around this area many years ago and I remember there being quite a few marktet stalls selling different things but we were very disappointed with our last visit. Most of the stalls only sell food. although there are one or two interesting shops around Only good thing was that it was nice to be in a less touristy area and to hear all the London accents!

Love this place that has some good markets, nice small park nearby and a shop I love there called RADIO DAYS, a quality, true vintage clothing shop. Interesting Graffiti Art nearby as well.

tip ** one day of the week there used to be markets from France, they would come on the train and sell here for the day.
