Why we love Borough Market
Time Out readers share what makes the foodie wonderland special to them.
Find the best restaurants, pubs and things to do in London’s Borough, including foodie heaven Borough Market
Borough has been a lively area since prehistoric times, but it became a bustling trade centre when the Romans founded Londinium around 43 AD. Its position on the Thames and proximity to London Bridge has ensured it’s remained a trading hub ever since. Though these days Borough is dominated by Borough Market, which gives the area its reputation as a foodie paradise. Generally, the best restaurants are in or very near the market but, if you know where you’re looking, you can find some gems hidden away. The bars and pubs are more spread out but are worth a little walk. Which is just as well, given how much you’re guaranteed to eat in Borough.
