london highlights: borough market

Mushroom Display at Turnips, Borough Market in London

I am a big city girl at heart, and when I got an opportunity to visit London, one of my favorite big cities in the world, I jumped at the chance. It was a quick trip, but I made the most of the four full days I had.  I didn’t have a strict agenda, being content with walking around the city and exploring different neighborhoods. This was my fourth time visiting London, and each time I grow more in love with this fast-paced, energetic city, with a charm all it’s own. Over the next couple of posts, I will be sharing the highlights of my trip. I hope you enjoy reading about them!

One of my favorite things to do in London is to visit Borough Market. It is London’s oldest market, located in the shadows of the Southwark Cathedral, on the southern end of the London Bridge.  The market is open for lunch Monday through Wednesday, with a few food stalls, and the full market is open from Thursday through Saturday.  The best day to go is Thursday or Friday, to avoid the massive weekend crowd.

Come for lunch and you’ll be treated to a dazzling array of choices from stalls selling fish and chips, pizzas, paellas and curries from enormous pans and sandwiches with all sorts of fillings.

For dessert, you can pick from various stalls selling chocolates, cakes, cookies, and ice cream.  My choice for dessert was Greedy Goat‘s Honeycomb ice cream.  If you’re like me and love the distinctive taste of goat’s cheese, then you’ll love this ice cream, with bits of honeycomb mixed throughout.  It’s a nice light ice cream, which is perfect after a day of indulgence.

I highly recommend visiting Borough Market. If you do, come hungry and you’ll leave with a full belly!
