Borough Market is one of London’s most vibrant markets and it’s always busy on the days it operates. This isn’t a place to find cheap clothes or discount electricals, this market is all about great food…and lots of it! From luscious fruit to artisan cheeses and from home-made pies to luxury olives, this market has it all and more.
Over recent years, Borough Market has really been building a name for itself as London’s premiere food market and there’s even a section with seating areas to eat the food you just bought. Borough Market is London’s oldest food market and it’s open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 5pm, Fridays 10am to 6pm and Saturdays 8am to 5pm.
The market nestles under the railway arches and next to it, you’ll find the Globe pub which is the fictional home of Bridget Jones in the movies. The most recognisable part of the pub from the Bridget Jones movies is the door onto Bedale Street where Bridget is seen coming and going to her flat. The street itself was used for the fight between Hugh Grant and Colin Firth in the first movie.
Borough market is part of the London Food Walking Tour which gets great reviews.
