Top ways to experience Borough Market
The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Do not come too early in the morning
Oct 2021 • Couples
after reading out of reviews, we had decided to visit the market on a week day about 10 AM. Too early. A lot of the stores were just opening up, many were still closed. We had to wait until noon time to get the full flavor of this market. It is smaller than we had thought, even YouTube gave an impression of a very large bustling market - we found it on the smaller scale and certainly not very busy. The array of displayed foods and goods is amazing, our favorite was the variety of seafood and cheeses. There are not many places to sit down, only some benches close to the street food section. We wanted to try fish and chips inside a restaurant there, the service was first class, and the cod and haddock were delicious. Very pricey market.

My local Market.
Oct 2021
This is a place I now go and visit all the time, sometimes even once a week. It's with in a short walk of my flat and I love it here. There are many different food stalls with great choices. For me, it's got everything I want and need. I highly recommend a visit, you can walk around for a look and as mentioned, you have a lot of great choice.

Morning visit
Oct 2021 • Couples
Loads of food stalls and fresh meat/veggies/fish. Wish we lived locally so we could have bought stuff but only in London for the day.
Couldn’t find any open toilets though so make sure you go before you leave home!

Buzzing

Brilliant market which is buzzing with life. There are so many food stalls it is difficult to make a choice of what to eat.
Well worth a visit.

Back to its buzzing best!
Oct 2021
Visited Borough Market and the London Bridge area on the spur of the moment on Monday, 12 October. Good to see the stalls buzzing and lots of people milling around. So many places to stop to eat but we were in a rush and chose Bao Borough, a Taiwanese take away. Food was freshly prepared (we had a wait of about 20 mins, which was acceptable) and utterly delicious. Price a bit high for two small buns but, hey, we liked the snack.

Our favourite London market
Oct 2021 • Couples
This is a go-to place for us in London - we love the combination of vendor stalls, hot food to take away, great, buzzing market atmosphere, and all of the bars and restaurants around the market.
And right by London Bridge tube.
