Borough Market Easy to get to? Good for kids? Value for money? free Worth a visit? 203

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.

If you enjoy this then try: Leadenhall Market (walk it in 14 mins or catch a train from London Bridge to Leadenhall Market) and Southwark (you can walk it 10 mins).
