When I was staying at the RE London Shoreditch Hotel in Hackey Road, I took a walk to the nearby Broadway Market, a Saturday food market located between the northern bank of Regent’s Canal and the southern end of London Fields.
Whilst there were plenty of tempting wares, I thought that everything was very expensive e.g. £3 for a loaf of ‘Artisan’ bread and £2.50 for a square of ‘Cherry Crumble Cake’. If I’d been hungry I’d probably have nipped into the Greggs bakery shop for something a bit cheaper.
Still, it costs nothing to have a wander around and soak up the atmosphere.
The closest Underground station to Broadway Market is Bethnal Green on the Central Line. It’d take around 20 minutes to walk to the market from there. Cambridge Heath rail station is closer, it’d take around 10 minutes to walk to Broadway Market from it.
After visiting the Broadway Market, I’d recommend a walk along Regent’s Canal to Islington Tunnel.
