I visited Borough market to buy some cakes for a work celebration today as I know they generally have a good selection of unusual and tasty treats. Arriving at 10:30am most of the stalls were set up. I went to Ion and could see they only had a single box out, I politely asked what else they might have, the... More

Our first visit to Borough Market. Lots of very exciting shops, with a great variety of product. Very interesting just to walk around and observe - and taste some of the specialties. Definitely worth a visit, and we will for sure come back next time we visit London.

Absolutely love this market! Excellent food & drinks. Such interesting cuisines with lots of different things, it is really difficult to choose what to eat! If I was local, I'd go there pretty much every day! Pictured: Amazing fresh & refreshing watermelon juice

Visited here on a Saturday and it was very busy. We came to taste many different things and weren't disappointed! I even had a sea urchin (disgusting, but I had to try it). The food in the stalls looks good and the sellers were very nice, giving out things to try. It's a pity there isn't a bigger designated seating... More

A must market to visit whilst in London if you are a foodie. An amazing market with a wide selection of international and local products, food and flavours to savour and purchase. There is a great extensive selection of food stalls with sublime cuisines from around the world, from bangers & marsh to Gzoyos and duck wraps. There are some... More

Came here on a Friday and it was fairly busy. The food looked amazing and smelled great. If we'd had more time would've explored a bit more.

Ive been to Borough Market a good few times never disappoints - you can literally have your whole meal here with all the samples - its just a pity that I cannot ever bring food home so that is why you have to eat it there, pies are amazing and cornish pasties as well.

Borough Market is a perfect mix of true street market and foodie heaven, with some local hangout and tourist trap thrown in. Pâté Moi has a mushroom pâté that is simply killer; Karaway Bakery's traditional breads are superb (ask for samples) and many of the green grocers have native, heirloom apples. Artisan du Chocolat's bars come in unique flavors -... More

If you are a market lover, and I think there are quite a few of us, this one is a must. Prepare to be amazed at the variety offered in this fantastic structure. At the various stalls there are many offerings to be enjoyed, and even more items for purchase and later use, On each visit I make a new... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
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 neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
