Address: 13-25 Church Street, London NW8 8DT
Lovers all things antique should get themselves moving and book a ticket to the English capital, where an abundance of fine antiquities can be found by the discerning buyer.
Founded by entrepreneur Bennie Gray in 1976, the area around the market has seen some considerable changes over the following decades, with much of the benefits to the local community being put down to the impact of the market itself.
Commenting, Mr Gray notes: “I’m unashamedly happy to say that the regeneration of this area is in large measure down to the success of Alfies.
“When I first had the idea, plenty of people said I was mad and that it was doomed to failure – which is just the sort of incentive that makes me go ahead with a plan.”
