A draw for locals and tourists, Borough Market offers an array of inviting bars, restaurants, produce, and takeaway options. Here you’ll find everything from succulent oysters and wild boar to artisan cheeses, meticulously crafted chocolates, and mouthwatering beer-battered fish and chips. Borough Market has it all — the best British cuisine and ingredients as well as culinary treats from around the world.
Meet your guide outside Evans Cycles, atop Dukes Street Hill. You’ll then start your gastronomic journey with an iconic British bite: the bacon and egg bap. The only choice you’ll need to make here is whether to accompany it with red or brown sauce.
Afterward, enjoy a leisurely stroll through this food-lover’s paradise, indulging in its diverse offerings. Next on the menu is another British staple: fish and chips. Picture golden, deep-fried, crispy batter enveloping tender, piping-hot white fish, served alongside generously cut chunky chips — best enjoyed drenched in a liberal dose of vinegar. Fun fact: Fish and chips were one of the few foods exempt from rationing during World War II.
If you believe you’ve reached your limit, think again. There’s always room for a traditional sausage roll, a daily indulgence for some Brits and a popular snack dating back to the Napoleonic Wars.
Take your time exploring the enchanting market alleys at your own pace before heading to a historic pub. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to savor the classic English pairing of cheese and cider, served with fresh fruit, crackers, and chutney.
We’ll take a scenic stroll on the banks of the River Thames, where you’ll enjoy stunning views of the world-famous London Bridge and Tower Bridge. In the backdrop, the silhouette of the battleship HMS Belfast adds to the iconic London skyline.
Finally, settle down for a classic sticky toffee pudding accompanied by a steaming pot of English tea. You’ll leave satisfied and delighted!
