Borough Market Tours

star-5
4 Reviews
Borough Market
Crammed full of artisan foods, homemade goodies, delicious street dishes and fresh produce, Borough Market is the go-to destination for in-the-know London foodies. With a history dating back over 1,000 years, Borough Market is the city's oldest and most famous food market, and—in case you need any more convincing—regular customers include celebrity chefs like Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay.

The Basics
There are few better ways to feel like a Londoner than a stroll around Borough Market. With more than 100 stalls selling everything from Italian cheese and Morecambe Bay shrimp to housemade fudge and fresh-from-the-oven baked goods, the legendary marketplace is a popular inclusion on London food tours. A walking tour with a local guide will give you the inside scoop on the most popular vendors and best prices.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Be prepared for crowds, especially during peak times.
  • Borough Market is committed to eco-friendly and sustainable practices, so do your part by bringing your own reusable shopping bag.
  • Bring comfortable walking shoes, as there are three different marketplaces and more than 100 stalls to explore.
  • Free Wi-Fi is available in the market, and public restrooms are available at Three Crown Square and the Market Hall.
  • The market and restrooms are wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
Borough Market is located in London Bridge on the south side of the River Thames and just a short stroll from the bridge itself and The Shard. The easiest way to get there is on the Tube, and the closest station is London Bridge on the Northern and Jubilee lines. Driving is not recommended as the market is in the congestion-charge zone and there’s no on-site parking.

When to Get There
Borough Market is open from Wednesday to Saturday, with a smaller market held on Mondays and Tuesdays. To avoid crowds, arrive early on a Saturday morning or come on a weekday afternoon. However, for the freshest produce and best choice, aim to get there before the lunchtime rush, when sandwiches, baked goods, and made-to-order products might sell out. 

Eating and Drinking at the Borough Market
Whether you’re hunting for ingredients, tucking into a healthy lunch, or want to discover London’s food scene, there’s something for everyone at Borough Market. Tuck into fresh pasta, sushi, or tapas at one of the many cafés; purchase British cheeses, charcuterie, and jams; or sample organic wines, ciders, and craft beers. After shopping, head to the demo kitchen in the Market Hall where guest chefs offer workshops, cooking demonstrations, and tasting sessions.
Address: 8 Southwark Street, London SE1 1TJ, England
Hours: Full market: Wed–Thurs 10am–5pm, Fri 10am–6pm, Sat 8am–5pm; Lunch market: Mon–Tues 10am–5pm
