Borough Market

Crammed full of artisan foods, homemade goodies, delicious street dishes and fresh produce, Borough Market is the go-to destination for in-the-know London foodies. With a history dating back over 1,000 years, Borough Market is the city's oldest and most famous market of its kind, and if you need any more convincing—customers include celebrity chefs like Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay.

This top destination for food walking tours can be visited with a guide who will serve up the inside scoop on the most popular vendors and best prices. With more than 100 stalls selling everything from Italian cheeses and Morecambe Bay shrimps to homemade fudge and fresh-from-the-oven baked goods, you're sure to find something that tempts you.

Whether the visit is fueled by a need for ingredients, the hunt for a healthy lunch or a desire to support London's small businesses, there's no better place in the city to buy quality British foods or sample exotic cuisine from all around the world. Travelers can tuck into fresh pasta, sushi or tapas at one of the many cafés; purchase British charcuterie, cheeses and jams; or sample organic wines, ciders and craft beers. Best of all, the emphasis is on top quality, homemade and artisan goods, so vendors are both passionate and knowledgeable about the products they sell.

Insider’s Tip: Head to the Demo Kitchen in the new Market Hall for regular workshops, cooking demonstrations and tasters whipped up by top London chefs.
