(Relaxnews) - Throughout the 2012 Olympic Games, Time Out, in partnership with Relaxnews, provides a tip of the day for visitors to London. Small is beautiful on this little east London street which becomes a boisterous riot of blooms once a week.
Every Sunday, between 8am and 3pm, this unassuming East End street becomes one of the prettiest, most colorful spots in London. Flowers and foliage line the curbs, and the fruity cries from stallholders (‘You lucky people!') draw the crowds. The shops and galleries along Columbia Road make for great browsing, and there are plenty of lovely little cafés too.
