4) Columbia Road Flower Market

This very popular market is an institution in London and is always a hot ticket when it comes to filming. Colourful, vibrant and busy come rain or shine the market will add that bustling London atmosphere to any shoot. A little oasis (quite literally) in the east end, friendly traders sell everything from bedding plants to 10 foot banana' trees. The adjoining streets are also adorned with picturesque Georgian houses if you happen to stray away from the main drag.

As with all markets, contact Film Office to ensure you have the correct permissions prior to your shoot!
