This place should be in every travel guide as a must visit. There is all kind of food. The food is great in all diferent kiosks and also there are restaurants and bars. Don't miss it. And don't go on a schedule so you can enjoy walking around.

If you enjoy eating any kind of food, then Borough Market is a most definite visit on your London itinerary. Easily accessible via the tube to London Bridge Station, Borough Market is a mind-blowing experience in food retailers all under one roof. Here, you get everything from fine imported cheese to multi-cultural favorites from Turkey and beyond.
What I loved most about this particular market was the energy of both the buyers and the sellers. You think back to a traditional British market as depicted in novels and movies when vendors would holler out their menus or products for sale to attract customers, and you get Borough Market today. Situated in a restored high-ceiling market area, the layout is confusing at first but after awhile you forget about it as you wander from one delicious stall to the next. I saw a lot of people come not just to buy food, but to take in the whole electric local market experience. I did some prior homework before going so I knew which stalls to visit, but then I found so many more after getting there. It was a fun afternoon.
If you visit only one market in London, Borough Market is it.

My wife and I went to the Borough Market for the second time. It was much quitter and we had time to walk around and browse a bit. We bought some spices and had coffee at a coffee shop around the corner from the Market.
It was a nice visit and I can recommend it. The cheeses look divine and the street food scrumptious!

If you like good food, a whole lot to choose from and a tapa's like idea, then Borough Market is the place to go. From all over the country people sell their food to a large crowd interested in what's on offer. You might choose indian, you might choose marrocan or simply a Brittish Pie. The quality is high, which is -admittingly- reflected in some prices, the taste is good and the choice is enormous. If you have your own cooking facilities then Borough Market offers a wide range of butchers, pie makers, greengrocers, breadmakers, etc. to have your pick. Definetly worth a visit. To be found near London Tower Bridge station (tube/rail), at walking distance from The Shard and closed on Sundays (!)

Unfortunately visited on a Tuesday when most of the market was closed but made the most of what was open which was the street food stalls. Marvellous pie, mash and gravy. Area had great atmosphere and we'll definately visit again next time we're in London but make sure we go on the right day next time !
