Bermondsey Antiques market - London - London

Bermondsey Antiques market - London

Bermondsey Square antiques market: Antiques in South London Other Markets Review

The Bermondsey Square antiques market is held every Friday 6AM to 2PM. I seem to remember this is a good place to look for silverware. Some of the dealers go shopping in Paris on Thursday and their "fresh" antiques will be for sale on this Friday market.

Despite of the early starting time; you can have a good breakfast at one the breakfast places around the square.

A newer market that's been held on the square is the Bermondsey Farmers’ Market on Saturdays and a Christmas Market in December.

What to buy: Antiques.

What to pay: Just haggle.

Address: Bermondsey Square - London, SE1 3UN

Directions: 700 meters South of the Tower Bridge.

London bus stops of buses: C10, 1, 42, 78, 188, C10 and N1.
