Borough Market: pause for a bite

for food lovers

A thousand and one colours, savours, and smells… out of the rain.

Described as one of the largest, best, and most beautiful of food markets, Borough Market is located just steps from the River Thames in southeast London, where it serves tourists and Londoners alike. This covered market is reserved for professionals from 2:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., but later opens to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (6:00 p.m. on Fridays; closed Sundays). A gourmet paradise, you'll be tempted at each of the more than 100 stands. Products, from England and around the world, are of exceptional quality; exotic fruits, meats, fish, spices, breads, and cheeses are just some of the delicious things you'll find. To go shopping, have lunch, walk around, or enjoy some of the tastings, the Borough Market will not disappoint. You'll also be able to call up memories of your visit by looking up recipes on their website when you get home.
