We love visiting the market when we are in London and if the weather is good you can eat a barbecue sandwich at the cafes and bars opposite the Cathedral and can sit and have a beer or a sangria.

Not bad prices at all and an abundance of food/drink options. I suggest you go when you haven't eaten at all, so you can have three meals here :) Find cheese, wine, beer, bread, bakery items, juices, coffees, pastas, fish, etc here. I wish I had stayed longer and been hungrier!

This is a great market but was extremely busy on a Friday lunchtime. Great range of stalls and foods. The sights and smells are amazing. Definitely worth a visit but maybe avoid Friday lunchtimes as the crowds were slightly uncomfortable.

If you want some Saturday Lunch street food, then come here and get a vegetarian thali. It was lovely, but you need to queue and like crowds!

Walked through the market on Friday morning as part of a tour and it looked and smelt really good. When back for a proper visit on Saturday afternoon and you could hardly move around the place. Sadly this really took any enjoyment away as you couldn't really see what most of the stands were selling. Would maybe try again but... More

A busy food oriented market in central London. Very high quality street food... the venison burger is a must! One of the best burgers we've experienced... slight problem tho, this is our staple choice on our visit and based on experience / expectations we will not try anything else! Great atmosphere, tastes and smells... a place to go on any... More

This is mainly a food market but one of some size with a very wide choice on offer. There's all the usual's such as burgers and sausages but also some less often found cuisines on show. If you're hungry you'll be spoilt for choice and virtually all the traders were happy to offer a sample before you parted with your... 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.
