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

Amazing markets! So many good food places. We had the seafood paella which was beautiful followed by a salt beef sandwich. The best part was the crumble from Humble Crumble, the best crumble we have ever eaten! Would 100% recommend

Unfortunately we just came about this market while wondering around the area and we had already eaten. There were so many food stalls like fish and chips/german desserts/gelato/cheeses and so much more. I would have loved to have been able to try something it all looked so diverse and delicious. I say it would be a great spot to stop for lunch or just a snack.

Very crowded during lunch time. Hard to walk through and there are long lines. Lots of variety of foods available with both hot and fresh options.

Hmm. Well it was very empty, unfortunately the area didn’t smell good at all. The food stalls themselves looked good however we were very put off but the smell of ‘rubbish’ so much that we didn’t even stop for a quick bite. Upsetting as it looked a ‘vibe’

Went for a stroll round here whilst working near the market. There’s lots of stalls selling lunches and various fresh foods can be bought and taken home. It’s a nice market, but of a tourist trap, but definitely worth a visit

Interesting enough market but not really worth the hype. Lots of nicely presented stalls but much of it seems somewhat overpriced.

Don’t eat before you go, such great food including best oysters we have ever had (plus you can get champagne and cocktails at the stand never door!) Such a fun outing on a Saturday morning, quick and easy to get to via London bridge station. Well worth making time to visit. Wish we were

Would have bought lots of cheese, meats and olives etc, but had to fly out a few hours later.
