While Lyndon and I were in London, we decided to have lunch at Borough Market after exploring the Tower of London in the morning. It was a Saturday, and it was crowded. We walked across London Bridge and took the stairs next to Southwark Cathedral down to the market. Bad idea. Everyone that came across London Bridge did the same thing and it was insanely crowded. People were trying to get into the market, people were trying to leave the market all in between tables of people and people in line ordering food. If you’re coming across London Bridge, I would recommend taking the stairs down to Montague Close which turns into Cathedral Street and entering the market that way. It might still be crowded but at least it won’t be as narrow as the way we came in.
After pushing our way in, we were greeted with everything I hoped Borough Market would be. The smells that filled the air were amazing and visually, it was just as appealing. We honestly couldn’t make up our minds on what to eat; everything looked delicious. We finally decided on splitting a lamb burger, Scotch egg, and sausage roll and some Turkish delights and baklava for dessert. Everything was fantastic and worth fighting the crowds for (and also worth all the calories as well).
Have you been to Borough Market? What did you get to eat there?
