This is the place to eat, especially if you enjoy having different portions from different vendors/cuisines. I found the Indian curry and samosas the best, but many others also look great. Try to avoid the busy lunchtime rush...

Great place to visit if you are into your food and ingredients. Lots of characters and lots of world food, but also amazing to see so many high quality products from the UK.

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
