I wish I lived close to this market, it's an amazing place. If you want something as simple as mushrooms, there is a stall there with every kind of mushroom under the sun, equally so with the tomato stall, who knew there was so many different types of tomato. The street food is fantastic, such an array of food from... More

Spent late morning wandering around the market. Foodies heaven with everything to buy from fish,meat,veg and much more. Many many places to eat, all different food types. We stopped many times to decide what to eat,you just have to for it ? Whatever you choose you won't be disappointed.

Borough Market in London puts to rest the cliché that British food is bland and boring. Turkish coffee, Argentine steak, Italian salumi and good old British butties abound.While it can get crowded, the service is usually swift and the results well worth any wait.

Had a fantastic pulled pork wrap as well as toasted cheese sandwich here. They were so good, I went back two more times during this trip to have my fill before I headed home to sunny Spore. A definite must-go place for the good food!

Great place to visit if you are hungry. Lots of good quality tasty food. Oysters, pasta, different regions, different flavours. Great place for healthy options too. Loved it, definitely would go back.

We visited the market on Saturday and we were looking forward to the visit, I struggled with how busy it was, I was literally ping ponging off people, walking round people, being barged by people. The food queues were horrendous there was no way I was going to wait sooooo long for food

Went late November, loads of street food vendors, great food, something for all tastes and reasonably priced. Food from all over the world can be found here from specialist teas, and a fantastic spice shop to good old fish and cheese (not on the same plate though). Beats going to a boring supermarket and has the added bonus of supporting... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
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.
