Explore Spitalfields Market
Just a five minute walk away from Liverpool Street Station, you’ll find the famous Spitalfields Market. It’s one of the most well known markets in the city and can get very busy.

The market itself is undercover, which makes it popular even on rainy days. If you’re staying in one of the Montcalm Hotels nearby, be sure to check it out.
