Chrisp Street Market (Fun Extra!)

The Chrisp Street Market is an outdoor market, made in 1951 as an attraction for the Festival of Britain. A festival to show the unique design and culture of Britain. Made of hexagonal stalls around a central clock tower to exemplify the feeling of social interconnectedness. Here you can find all types of food, household items, clothing, and other goods! 

Designed by Frederick Gibberd, also responsible for the building of the Lansbury Estate, an example of Post War social housing.
