Always visit this market when in London! My favourites are the duck confit burger, pork sandwich and the curry shack! There is also a stall that sells jars of hot garlic pickle.

We visited on a busy bank holiday, and at the time it was celebrating Indian foods. The food we tried was awesome, although it would have been great to have a little more variety (even in Indian foods), as most stalls were very similar. Ultimately...More

Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a
thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
