London Bridge is one of the most visited destinations in the capital and has so much to offer, the most obvious being its famous Borough Market, one of the largest and most renowned food markets in London and certainly one of the oldest, dating back before the 12th Century.
Borough Market is a great combination of old and new, selling fresh meat, fish, cheese, fruit, veg and bread, not to mention preserves and endless sweets, chocolates and honeycombs to tempt visitors; it is open Monday to Saturday and closed on public holidays.
Butlers Wharf Chop House is a local institution celebrating the best of British. It’s a destination for lovers of traditional Sunday roasts and benefits from a great riverside location.
Wright Brothers Borough Market is immersed in the buzz of the market and is a great place to indulge in the freshest seafood cooked in an open kitchen where you can watch the chefs at work. The Jersey rock oysters are always amazing here, maybe washed down with a pint of Guinness.
Arabica Bar & Kitchen is a Levant restaurant, serving a glorious mix of Lebanese, Moroccan, Syrian, Egyptian, Turkish and Armenian dishes. It’s as great as it sounds.
Lobos Tapas is a restaurant at the top of its game and genuinely compares favourably to anything you may have eaten in Spain. It can be a tight fit in the restaurant, but worth the squeeze.
Applebee’s Fish is a family run fish restaurant in the heart of Borough Market, with a varied and tasty menu. You can even choose your fish from Applebee’s own fishmonger at the front of the restaurant.
The George Inn on Borough High Street dates back to medieval days and is the only surviving galleried London coaching inn. The pub has been identified on a map dating back to 1543, which is pretty incredible. The icing on the cake is that Charles Dickens drank here and even referenced the pub in his novel, Little Dorrit, which is set around the area.
