Sunday Markets

Markets

Memorable places to buy your souvenirs are bustling, typically English Saturday markets held in a pretty town square. As red and white bunting flutters in the breeze, local vendors will be out in force selling everything from hand-made jewellery to wooden toys and organic toiletries. Take a trip to Sunday markets or flea markets, perhaps hidden under impressive railway arches, to unearth antiques and rare furniture, vintage postcards and curious items of memorabilia. Don’t forget to take a spare suitcase to carry home all your treasures.
