borough market, london1

Visiting a food market is always one of the most interesting ways to experience a destination. And why not? It’s fun, affordable and interactive. For a riot of colours, sights and smells and a quick insight into the ever-evolving food scene of London, hit the Borough Market that sits on one end of the London Bridge. Wander around and get to know all about its 1,000-year-old extraordinary heritage.

Meet home bakers, small-scale artisan producers and traders with a vast culinary knowledge!

This is not only the place to buy fresh produce but also feast on hot, freshly-made food. Think chocolate truffles, handmade pasta, Indian street food, melt-in-mouth fudge, dim sums, Arabic cuisine and more. If you wish to taste some of the best British and regional delicacies in the company of curious foodies, join one of the group food tour.

With Secret Food Tours by Essor, you’ll be led by a chirpy guide who makes sure you stop at every noteworthy British joint and sample its specialty.  Lastly, always go for a food tour empty stomach!
