Good for kids? Value for money? free Worth a visit?

Borough Market may be the oldest fruit and veg market in London, dating back to a map in 1542.

Records from a century later fix its position to what is now Borough High Street, but by 1754 it had become so popular that all the traffic around was getting blocked, so a decision was taken to move it into Stoney Street near Southwark Cathedral.

The food stalls on display are of rather high-quality, and have been lauded by the likes of Jamie Oliver. Many of the stalls have gourmet food to sample, and there are a number of good cafés around if you want something more substantial.

Craig’s review of London Buses I'm fifth in line behind three beer bottles and a half-eaten hamburger in a sauce-splattered carton. The other guy standing here is trying to peel the pages of his rain-sodden newspaper apart while we're waiting for the bus to loom out of the morning mist. There's a stream of headlights approaching down the road but by the time they arrive they have revealed themselves to be cars… continued
Craig’s review of Leicester Square Everybody looks wrecked in the morning but I'm the middle-aged kind of wrecked, where you roll out of bed feeling like you've only had five minutes kip. These sleeping kids in Leicester Square are the other type: they look like they're at the tail-end of a long night out that still hasn't ended yet. I'm glad I don't have to do that anymore -- I much prefer Leicester Square during th… continued
