Borough Market is a feast for the senses. If you can face braving the crowds, it really is worth it. 

Steeped in history, the site has been a fruit and veg market since the thirteenth century. As you eye up cockles and jellied eels on the fish stalls and listen to the bells from Southwalk Cathedral you really can imagine it in times gone by. 

Nowadays the market is a foodie haven. From mouthwatering meringues to the most tempting slices of thin salt beef, the market offers every edible thing that you could possibly desire. Of particular note is the Ginger Pig, that has become London's premier butcher, and Casa Brindisa's market stand serving nothing but delicious hot chorizo and rocket ciabatta. 

The new glass-fronted Market Hall facing onto Borough High Street is a great addition: as well as housing demonstrations and workshops there are tables where you can stop and eat your pickings from the market if it's raining. 

Plus, don't miss the likes of Neal's Yard Dairy, Monmouth Coffee Co. and Konditor and Cook (try the brownies!), which all have shops close by.
