I could happily wander around the market ALL day. It's got a great buzz and it just invites you to sample a HUGE range of foods and drinks. But beware; choose the right day or you'll get crushed by the many, many others who love...More

Asked the owner what a bbq chicken box consisted of as there were no descriptions, he was dismissive and pointed at the board that displayed a list of items for sale.....no explanations. Asked him again and he pointed to a wrap with rice, chicken and...More

On a Wednesday lunchtime i visited with much anticipation, only to be bitterly disappointed. It was over crowed with tourists which is what the market now caters for not foodies. I went in ted's veg to find re-hydrated produce that was dripping with water and...More

First, probably only fair to say that on the day we visited the weather was awful - very strong winds that blew things from the stalls, heavy rain showers, interspersed with spells of sunshine - not really the kind of day to spend a couple...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
