Borough Market

Borough Market is one of London's largest and most well-known food markets, located in Southwark.

The markets have long-lasting traditions, as they have been around already for almost a thousand years. At the market, you can find everything from hamburgers and fish and chips to Ethiopian food as well as smoothies and fresh fruit juices. The markets also have baked goods, like cakes, pastries and sweets, chocolate and fudge. At Borough Market, you can also join a paid tour as well as a cooking course (typically lasting a few hours).

Getting there

Borough Market is a few minutes walk away from the London Bridge station, so the easiest way is to go via underground or train to London Bridge, where you can follow the signs to the market.


As Borough Market is situated right next to London Bridge, the other interesting places in the area are just a short walk away, such as The Shard and Clink Prison Museum. There is roughly a 5-minute walk to the Thames river.
