There is so much to see in the market that your guide will give you 10-20 minutes to look around yourselves, giving you a chance to buy gifts or eat any samples. Your personal guide will explain the history of the market and the surrounding areas including Sir Francis Drake’s Golden Hind, the Shard and Southwark Cathedral. Your tour will continue to a historic pub where you can try the best of British cheeses, served with grapes, fig cakes and chutneys, washed down with real London beers, ales or delicious ciders (or non-alcoholic options). You will also see the world-famous London Bridge and Tower Bridge on the River Thames as well as the Battleship HMS Belfast. Finally, the tour ends with classic desserts, such as cheesecakes, chocolate brownies or sticky toffee puddings, all washed down with a pot of refreshing tea. Oh, and of course there’s a delicious secret dish too!

Our guide was Dan, and he was really awesome! He made the tour so enjoyable, and included everyone in the activities. The food he had arranged was sooo good, and we loved it all. He let us have time to go off by ourselves for a bit so we could further explore the Borough Market. I would absolutely take this tour if I was coming to London - and ask for Dan to be your guide!

It was a very fun tour. We liked the food and we wouldn't have eaten a lot of it. The guide also told us a bit about English history, but not in the usual boring style, but in an interesting and amusing way. We would unreservedly recommend the tour.

Fantastic tour. Tour guide David was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of insights of British food. Highly recommend this tour.

Excellent, you save time and money if you go to the fullest visiting what you like, super super recommended !!

Wonderful choices of food along with some history mixed in with the food
