Wanderlust Wednesday: Greenwich Market
If my posts revolving around Greenwich haven’t already persuaded you to visit the place yet then I don’t know what will. It is hands down my favourite place in London, mostly because I love the park so much and the view of the city you see from there. Greenwich is full of other beautiful spots I love spending time at, such as the museums, the University Chapel (also known as the Royal Naval College) and the market. Check out my other posts about Greenwich, Tube Stop Tuesday: Cutty Sark for Maritime Greenwich and Wanderlust Wednesday: Greenwich Park.
Greenwich Market is a short walk away from the Cutty Sark in the centre of the town. You’ll find lots of stalls selling antiques and interesting hand crafted items. Around the market there are traditional English gift shops, sweet shops, and cafes. I loved the quirkiness of the market and found myself fascinated with some of the hand made gifts, such as the metal leaf necklaces which are actually made from real leafs! I took a business card because I loved them so much. They are by ‘Roccabella Natural Fashion’ and the jewellery is created by electro forming (a metal forming process). Imagine finding a perfect leaf and being able to turn it into a necklace made out of metal! They are so beautiful.
Vintage Markets like this are perfect for finding thoughtful and unique gifts.
