Top ways to experience Borough Market
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.
How to get there
  • London Bridge • 5 min walk
  • Monument • 8 min walk

Quality and Quirky
Nov 2021
What a great mixture of fresh food in a quirky market area. The cheeses, dried meats, fresh fish and condiments are just fabby and whilst not cheap and a little touristy, I loved every minute and spent far too much.

Combination Food Court and Market for Foodies
Nov 2021
We love a good market, especially one that combines specialty food items with places to eat. Borough Market features both under one large roof. In addition to numerous places to grocery shop for bread, cheese, meat, bakery items, ethnic food and more, you can spend your time eating your way around the market at the numerous food carts and eateries.

We visited the market three times over five days; two mid-week and on Saturday. It was quite busy on Saturday but every bit as enjoyable.

If you are staying in London and have cooking facilities, Borough Market is a convenient and exciting place to shop.

So much choice and quality
Nov 2021 • Friends
I love Borough Market! There is so much choice and variety here, all of excellent quality too,

You can find cuisine from all over the world whether you buy it from one of the many street food stalls or stall holders selling fine food and drink.

Borough Market is located right near London Bridge and a stone’s throw from the Thames so it’s really central and convenient for public transport

Recommend!

Primarily Geared Up For Eaters Now
Nov 2021
Still an great food experience, but now much more geared to selling a wide range of cooked food from stalls, perhaps to tourists, rather than the amazing source of culinary ingredients it was a few years ago. Several good Camra recommended pubs are very close by to complete you epicurean visit.

An experience all of its own
Nov 2021
Fantastic choice in this sprawling market on London's South Bank. You see things here that are unusual if not unique. A lively bustling atmosphere prevails.

Interesting array of foods
Nov 2021 • Couples
Our first visit to Borough market. We went mid week & so comfortable walking around. On first impression there seems a lot of stalls selling cheese. There’s lovely old London pubs surrounding the market. Within the market hot food & drinks are available.
Interesting foods & produce you don’t see so often in your supermarket.
Worth a visit

Amazing Market
Nov 2021 • Couples
Without a doubt one of the best if not the best market in Britain.

If you’re into food and drink then it’s your place to be, fresh, artisan and street food.

Go hungry and explore.
