Morning Chats in the 30+ Lounge

Sharing is caring!

Every morning, we offer some extra conversation time to our students with a member of the staff. We sit, have a hot drink and discuss a specific topic or even play some ice-breaker games.

One day of this week, they asked us to provide some “hidden gems” in London. More specifically, street markets that they can attend… FOR FREE!

To start off, we discussed the famous Portobello Road Market in Notting Hill, which is the largest antique market in the world.

Then, we talked a little bit about the Shoreditch area: Brick Lane and the Old Spitalfields Market. This last one is filled with the work of local artists and a wide variety of food to choose from.

We briefly mentioned, probably the most known, Covent Garden in Central London and Borough Market by London Bridge, which is considered to be one of the oldest and largest markets in London.

If you continue down the road from Borough Market, closer to Elephant & Castle, you will find another great place called Mercato Metropolitano. Here you will find food from all over the world like Vietnamese, Argentinian, Italian and Venezuelan.

There are many other not-that-known places in this great city, so come discover them by studying at our English School for Adults in London.
