  • Borough market is the best market in London in my opinion. It has so much to offer from delicious cheese markets, to fresh lobsters and freshly squeezed delicious apple juice. There so much choice for food and there’s no way you could leave having not found something delicious to eat. There is food from almost every county you could imagine and it’s amazing food. It’s right next to London Bridge station too meaning it’s easy to get to. If you want to go to visit an brilliant market to buy some fresh produce or even to go on an international food tour in just one, borough market is perfect.
  • Wish I had skipped breakfast before going, so many great food stalls and the smells are amazing. Borough Market is a wonderful place to visit, if you are looking for some great food or simply want to see what London has to offer. This market has been open since the 1800s and has become one of England's most famous tourist destinations. When I was there last year, I found myself in awe at all the amazing variety of flavors that they had available. There were stalls with everything from meats and cheeses, to fruit and vegetables. Even more delicious treats like freshly baked breads were sold there! I was able to try some of the items, and it is clear why they are so popular! I even tried a traditional English dish called Toad in the Hole. This dish consists mainly of sausages that have been baked into Yorkshire pudding batter. It's definitely something worth checking out if you get a chance! If you are looking for a unique and fun experience, I definitely recommend visiting Borough Market. You can find some amazing food there that you won't be able to get anywhere else in the city! The market is open Monday-Saturday from early morning until late evening. Admission is free, so it's a great option if you're on a budget. Plus, who doesn't love good food? :)
