It is very pleasant to take a stroll through Borough Market when "fully opened" (Wednesday through Saturday). Sunday it is closed, and the other days the opened shops are restricted. There are a lot of different things to see, lots of local specialties, which are always interesting to see. All in all, a very interesting stop when in London (and... More

We spent an interesting morning here, so much to see. Truffles, (fungal) can be seen and sniffed, purchased also if you can afford it. Wonderful selection of cheeses.

No trip to London would be complete for me without a trip to a market. I spent many of my weekends as a teenager in Camden shopping my way through the stalls, eating and drinking tea. This time I graduated to foodie haven Borough Market. Nestled beneath the arches of London Bridge, Borough Market is a market of two personalities.... More

I've been visiting Borough Market for years and it really is 'London's Larder'. Sited underneath railway bridges and squeezed up against Southwark Cathedral, it's a glimpse of an artisan London which is increasingly difficult to find. It's busy, noisy, sometimes a bit shabby around the edges but full of character and a source of some of the best organic food.... More

Borough Market, London’s most famous food market, is a real gem. It offers a wide selection of local and international food as well as a fun and friendly atmosphere. I would recommend walking around to see your options before deciding on your meal. I personally liked Roast Hog’s roll with roast pork, apple sauce, rocket and crackling though La Tua... More

It is a bit cliche but very true in this case, Borough Market has something for everyone. You can buy your dinner for the evening, a handmade soap present for a friend, have excellent food on the go or even sit down in one of the adjoining restaurants. It is a place I often forget and regularly stumble upon. Not... More

Having seen the market on lots of cookery shows I was really looking forward to visiting. The market was a lot smaller than expected however the produce available was varied with some very unusual products. The stalls make a great effort with their displays so it is well worth a wander around and many give free samples so you can... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighborhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
