Amazing Mother’s Day ideas in London

  • Things to do
  • Borough

Dating back to the thirteenth century, this historic food market (London’s oldest) is a sprawling cornucopia of gourmet goodies. It’s best to visit Borough Market on an empty stomach so you have room to snaffle samples of the bread, cured meats, cheese, olives and pastries on offer. It's completely free to visit, and many of the vendors will be selling special Mothers Day gifts – perfect if you’ve run out of time to pick up something for mum.
