Bermondsey Antiques Market
Bermondsey Antiques Market Review
The early bird catches the worm here, so come before dawn on a Friday (flashlight recommended) to bag a bargain at London's largest antiques market. Dealers arrive as early as 4 am to snap up the best curios and silver, paintings, objets d'art, and furniture. The early start grew out of wrinkle in the law under which stolen goods bought here during the hours of darkness when provenance could not be determined did not have to be returned.
Bermondsey Square. The recent establishment of the Saturday morning Bermondsey Farmers' Market, as well as the redevelopment of Bermondsey Square itself, has attracted more customers to the Antiques Market. The square now boasts a boutique hotel, an art-house cinema, and a good independent bookstore (Woolfson and Tay), as well as restaurants. Bermondsey Sq., SE1 3FD. www.bermondseysquare.co.uk.
