London Fields & Broadway Market

Hipsters, dog walkers, toddlers and tourists all flock to London Fields. Come the summer and the first sign of sun, it looks like the whole of Glastonbury has decamped to this popular park.

Luckily there is plenty for everyone to do, from a play zone and paddling pool for families, to a BBQ area and London's only 50-metre heated outdoor pool, London Fields Lido.

On the park's southern edge is Broadway Market, its famous Saturday market is bursting with global foods, produce, clothes and craft. But all week round you'll find independent cafes, boutiques, grocers, book and record shops.

Just across the road, Netil Market is packed with food trucks, vintage stalls and designer-makers, while Mentmore Terrace near London Fields station, is abuzz with cafes and craft breweries, flat whites and avocados on toast.
