Exmouth Market

A short stroll from Angel tube station, Exmouth Market is a fashionable pedestrionised street running parallel to Rosebery Avenue. Home to an eclectic mix of oh-so-trendy boutique shops (selling books, furniture, and even bikes), cosy cafes, lively bars, and top restaurants (Moro, anyone?); Exmouth Market attracts a diverse crowd of foodies, students, office-workers and media-types.

During the week market stalls serve up tasty lunches for £5 or less. Some of Exmouth Market’s best restaurants have their own stand – including Moro, Gulshan and Sade – offering a perfect opportunity to sample their wares at a fraction of the price (and without having to book 10 days in advance!). Other stalls specialise in Mexican, Thai and Jewish cuisine (the salt beef bagels are a must); while a cake stand displays a mouth-watering assortment of cheesecakes for those seeking something sweeter.

Busy during the week? Come on the weekend or in the evening, and grab a table outside one of Exmouth Markets numerous cafes, bars or restaurants (see below) to indulge yourself with some of the best people watching in the city – over excellent coffee, delectable cocktails, or a hearty meal.
