Borough Market is London’s most renowned food and drink market and dates back to 1014. Both a source of British and international produce, it consists of more than 100 stalls and strands. Producers from all over the country bring a range of fresh produce to the market including fish, meats, vegetables, ciders, breads, cheeses, coffees and cakes. Other stalls specialise in produce imported from abroad.
You will have time to explore the many stalls and enjoy some of the local delicacies* before exploring the South Bank, home to the Tate Modern and the Globe Theatre
From kings, queens, statements, soldiers, priests, heroes and villains – Westminster Abbey is steeped in more than a thousand years of history. The Abbey has been the coronation church since 1066 and is the final resting place of 17 monarchs. The present church, begun by Henry III in 1245, is one of the most important gothic buildings in the country. You will experience a fully guided tour as your guide brings the story of the Abbey to life.
