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.

Great place to spend the afternoon. Browsing and sampling. Lots of places to sit to enjoy the sampling too. Many bars, restaurants and pubs all around the market; so plenty to choose from. I was looking forward to visiting and I was not disappointed. Very friendly vibrant place with so much to see and do.

The Borough Market is one of the most renowned markets in London for artisan prepared food, and fresh organic produce.

My favourite stand is the vendor who sells Duck Confit Sandwich - a ciabatta roll, lightly buttered, a few sprigs of rocket, and filled up with a generous amount of the tender duck confit.

This needs to be on your bucket list!

This was my favorite market I visited in my week visiting London. The market displays here are some of the most elaborate and enticing. There's about every cheese you could think of spread out among quite a few vendors. For any tourist bakers, I would recommend checking out Spice Mountain; they've got great freeze-dried fruit powders and unique spices for your pastries!

For a quick but super flavorful and satisfying bite, go straight to the salted beef stand. The kids who work there are badasses who can serve up a mean beigel (yes, that's how it's spelled) with salted beef, pickles, and mustard. It was quite frankly one of my favorite things I had in my whole trip!
