I have visited two antique markets in the downtown London; and I loved this one. A pretty wide variety of shops and it is worth to spend half day there....

Having visited ALL the markets in London we thought we would spend the morning at Alfies the weekend just gone!

What a waste of time! Antique?! No! Brick brack market more like, don't waste your one unless your know exactly what you are looking for.

The only reason I can see for anybody visiting Alfies is Vintage clothing and Accessiores, they have this in its hundreds but beside this it's like a car boat sale! The premises are awful too, so to my tourist friends avoid! Portabello, Camden, Bourogh Market should be on your hit list!

Alfies has been in existence for years...
Church ( Near marylebone Station ) began with a few antique shops 40 or so years ago...\then came Alfies ..It is 3/4 floors of a whole host of treasures and eclectic antiques from clothes , pictures ,jewelry..etc..etc..
.On the top flooor is a restaurant and coffee shop.
The street itself has become rather grand with expensive antiques and rather snooty owners .
Saturday is market day and the whol street boasts antiques and clothes ,fabrics etc...
i would visit during the week,however, and save your market experiences for Portabello, Brick Lane and Spitalfields.. It is closed on Sundays...as are most of the markets...BUT NOT CAMDEN !!!!

I was looking for another antique market in London for my mum as notting hill seemed overrated, and the other one near borough wasn't on. I found this place from tripadvisor and thought I would give it a try- anyways- location is not well sign posted but just look at the map, it's about 5-7 min walk from Marlyborne station. The place has around 3 floors and various sellers in the building so good when it is bad weather outside! It has number of things from cheap to expensive including silverware, jewelery and also some really cool vintage clothes. Some of the shops were closed on that day but it has all the numbers on the door so if you have any interested in the objects you can call the dealer etc. We got some good bargains that day and don't hesitate to haggle. The sellers are all friendly and interested in telling you the products history etc ( not like notting hill one where they won't even look at you depending on what you are wearing). There is a cafe there if you fancy as well. I think if you are looking for some antique furniture ( not the old ones but the cool italian/funky ones ) there is a whole floor dedicated to pretty cool stuff there too. So it is pretty cool! I managed to get some pretty metal cups/sauce pots for 2 pounds each which is also a bargain.
