Always visit this market when in London! My favourites are the duck confit burger, pork sandwich and the curry shack! There is also a stall that sells jars of hot garlic pickle.

Perfect for a sunny evening after work or an evening stroll for tourists. Vibrant with lots of amazing food and drink options. A bit light on seating but it's a street market after all so get cozy with a stranger on one of the benches...More

thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
