London 115 – Borough Market, Southwark Cathedral & The Monument to the Great Fire of London
Borough Market is a must visit for me every time I go to London. It’s the best place to sample some of the English best street food and fresh produces. I love wandering around Borough Market the first time with my sister, kept buying different food and snacks just to try out as many things as possible. The following are some of my favourite food and snacks from the market, which included the Duck Confit Sandwich from Le Marche du Quartier (my favourite of them all; £5 each), Scotch Egg from Scotchtails (link here
and my 2nd favourite of them all; £4.50 each), Boston Sausage (link here
; £1.50 each), Pastel de Nata (£1.50 each), Beef Pie from Pieminister (link here
), the fresh oysters and fresh prawns cocktails, and many many more. In the end every time when I was there, I realised that we’d spent more money eating street food than in a sit down restaurant…. but that’s the power of Borough Market that would make you wanna to keep eating and eating, spending and spending….
How to get to Borough Market: London Bridge Station is the closest Tube station if you are on Jubilee or Northeen Lines. I’d also taken the Circle/ District Lines to Monument Station and walked across the London Bridge over to Borough Market.

Southwark Cathedral is right next to the Borough Market. We went in to have a look but nothing much in there just another old cathedral although with almost a thousand year old history.
We walked across the London Bridge from the Monument Station to get to the Borough Market.
The 1st thing we saw right outside of the Monument Station, the Monument to the Great Fire of London, which was built at the junction of Monument Street and Fish Street Hill where the Great Fire started on 2nd September 1666.
