Borough Market - Eating, Shopping & Things To Do in London - LikeALocal Guide

Why locals love it?

If food makes your world a brighter place then it’s time to hot-foot it to London's most renowned food market. The edible delicacies at the bustling Borough Market will make all of your dreams come true. And more. There’s cheese, pestos, chutneys, breads, olives, sweets, fresh vegetables...the list is endless.

Why you should visit it

Take the long route and walk there over London Bridge for some mean views of Tower Bridge. Once there, you can buy yourself lunch and then simply peruse through the various stalls, taste-testing the other treats on offer. Finish it all off with a pint at The Rake. It may be the smallest pub in London but it's more than a little bit awesome.

Special tip

This is the home of Kappacasein's famous toasted cheese sandwich, that is honoured by critics amongst London's top 10 sandwiches. Must eat.

Fantastic farmers market. Unfortunately it's becoming too touristic, it gets crowded on the weekends. Good quality products in the shops but won't recommend you eat there, the food trucks and stalls are not that great. A short 15min walk to the east will take you to Maltby Street market for an amazing market lunch (Only Sat/Sun)
