A stone throw away from the London Underground, this hidden gem is packed with people. Very busy and the atmosphere is what you would expect from a very traditional old fashioned market. Lots of stalls with different food drinks on sale. Food here is cheap,...More

Lots of great international options at this fun market! We enjoyed walking around and eating lots of different cuisines, but we definitely didn’t allow enough time to walk through the whole thing, and it was a little confusing to find, but overall well worth the...More

I went there on a Saturday morning at 10AM. At that time everything was opened and there weren't too many people there. It was a fun environment and sampling different options from different vendors was a great way to spend an afternoon. Would highly recommend...More

Lovely market with different hand made items. Great place for Christmas shopping if you're looking for some original gifts. Some things are a bit pricey but worth a price if it's handmade

Visited as part of a tour, lots of cheese, berries and oysters around. The vendors are nice and polite, even offer free taste that they pick/cut directly from what they are selling. Downside, most of the stuff are overpriced, and am not fond of snacking....More

If you’ve never been, and a foodie you’re missing out! Great selection of food and drink opportunities, for both purchase or consumption on the spot. Get off at London Bridge rather than Borough and save your legs.

This market is very nice. Lots of small places to by food to eat or to bring home. Around the market are a lot of small cosy restaurants. Lots of people when we visited.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

We found a place to sit but had to stand for a while before seats were free. There are free cash machines just outside the market. We used one just in case it was cash only but didn’t even check.
