If you're traveling to London you must see Borough Market! And make sure you go there hungry because there are so many different types of foods and cuisines to try. You will leave there very full and with lots of goodies! Must try Lail Live and Kappacasein.

Grab some nice food here. 5 min walk from London Bridge station. Many films have been shot here including Bridget Jones. The pub where they drank in is also here but I'll let you find it yourself on your search 😊

Notice foodie tourists: this is THE place you want to be when in London. Not only is this the best market in the city, it's one of my favorite markets in the entire world! Whenever I arrive in the U.K. I make a beeline for Borough Market. The market is sprawling yet easily manageable. I've been known to spend anywhere... More

we walked over tower bridge and over to Borough Market. Arrived at lunch time. Mayhem. Lines long for food and to crowded to see stalls. Go on off peak times!

Foodies will love this market. If you go at the weekend be prepared for queues, but everything smells so good! There is a lovely selection of fresh, luxury and cooked foods. There is also a small section of craft items. My friends and I enjoyed wandering down the little lanes of the market, taking in the goods on offer and... 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.
