Borough Market, located alongside London Bridge, is a foodie’s paradise — home to more than 100 vendors, markets and restaurants. Dating back to the year 1014, Borough Market is easily one of the oldest food markets in the world, and a place that every foodie should visit during a trip to London.
Food ranges from fresh produce and meats, to delicious stalls cooking up everything from falafels and “Jack the Ripper” burgers to Scotch Eggs and their famous Borough Market grilled cheese.
Some of my favorite Borough Market restaurants are Fish (voted best Fish & Chips in London for 2017) and Tapas Brindisa, a great little Spanish restaurant just across the street from the London Bridge Underground.
It would take you days to try everything, but some of the best food stalls in Borough Market – in my opinion – are Scotchtails for unique Scotch eggs, Khanom Krok for authentic Thai street food, Mountain’s Boston Sausage for sausage rolls and sandwiches made with Lincolnshire sausage, Nana Fanny’s for salt beef beigels and falafel wraps, Pieminister for hot British savory pies, and Roast Hog for Tuscan spit roast hog. There are also several vegan and vegetarian options as well!
Borough Market’s hours are 10-5 Mondays-Thursdays, 10-6 Fridays and 8-5 on Saturdays. The best days to visit are Wednesday-Saturday, when all of the vendors are there. You can pick up a Borough Market map on their website.
To get to Borough Market, take the Tube to the London Bridge station. Borough Market is located right across the street.
