I love Borough Market but I am often put off by all the tourists. We went yesterday and all the charm was still there. Definitely worth fighting the crowds for some yummy treats.

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,

of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

We found a place to sit but had to stand for a while before seats were free. There are free cash machines just outside the market. We used one just in case it was cash only but didn’t even check.
