The best market to visit in one of the most famous cities in the world is the Borough Market in London. This market, which has a long history, highlights everything beautiful about regional cuisine while bringing people together. Regardless of whether you enjoy food or not, visiting London's Borough Market should be at the top of everyone's list of things to do.


London has several marketplaces, but the Borough Markets are not your typical marketplace. This market in downtown London was thought to have started around 1014 amid the rough and tumble society of the waterfront and docklands along the Thames. Although the Thames presently has several bridges connecting the two banks, there was only one bridge available for passage over the river back then—the renowned London Bridge.


Things to do at Borough Market?

  • View several of the city's most iconic attractions in the vicinity of the market from the Thames river in the speed boat equipped with suspension seats. Your knowledgeable captain and a private tour guide will greet you when you arrive at Tower Bridge Quay.
  • Take a trip to Southwark Cathedral. Southwark's riverfront panorama had advanced well beyond any early stages of development. It is a beautiful sightseeing spot.
  • Discover what it was like to cruise the vast oceans on an Elizabethan galleon during the intrepid times of the 16th century by visiting this living history museum of Golden Hinde.
  • Witness the best food tasting and cultural walking tours in London offered by the London Food Tour. This will help you to experience the distinctive flavors of London.
  • Picking up delicious fresh bread and lovely doughnuts at Bread Ahead is like hitting two birds with one stone. Therefore, it is no secret that we like eating pastries just as much as we enjoy appreciating their craftsmanship.
  • Visit Spice Mountain to experience an eye-appealing feast of herbs and spices. The walls are lined with tiny bottles and plastic containers filled with dried herbs, mixed spice rubs, seeds, and pods, which symbolize components gathered from all over the world.
  • There is no doubting the incredibleness of properly prepared French Saucisson. The Saucisse De Morteau, a smokey mixture created from a 16th-century recipe, is among the many items the French Comte offers at the Borough Market. All of these eatables can be found in lovely displays.
