Staying in Borough

Borough is a district steeped in history. Its background as a lively hub of trade and commerce is still recognised throughout London to this day. The district is also renowned for its modern, stunning architecture that often stands shoulder to shoulder with the significant cultural landmarks of the city’s past.

Visitors to the area will immediately be aware of the presence of The Shard, London’s tallest skyscraper, which is a unique fusion of British and Qatari development. However, the district is most well-known for its iconic Borough Market – a historic wholesale and retail food market thought to date back as far as the 11th century. Having become something of a paradise for food lovers, enthusiasts and aficionados, the market is only a short walk away from the South Bank’s Millennium Bridge, an iconic city landmark built to celebrate the passing of a much more recent epoch.

Away from the glitzy, centre-stage attractions of Borough, this inner area of London has also garnered a reputation as a vibrant centre for arts, also housing a number of nightclubs, bars and plush cocktail lounges.

Where is Borough in London?

Borough is situated on the southern banks of the River Thames, accessible via London Bridge and Southwark Bridge. Although it’s an area of London, it is, in fact, the northern part of the bigger and official London Borough of Southwark. Only a short journey away from the City of London, visitors will be ideally located for exploring historic attractions such as the Tower of London and St Paul’s Cathedral.

Those staying in the area additionally benefit from being conveniently close to Waterloo Train Station and London Bridge Train Station, the latter of which is nestled away almost directly beneath The Shard. Borough Tube Station offers access to other areas of the city via the Northern Line, and London Bridge Tube Station provides access to the Jubilee Line.

Things to do in Borough

Borough is one of London’s most fascinating areas for those keen on learning more about Britain’s naval and nautical history. Only a few minutes’ walk from Borough Market is The Golden Hinde, a magnificent replica of the vessel Sir Francis Drake captained during his circumnavigation of the globe.

Only a short step further alongside the Thames will lead visitors to another relic of a later era of British naval history. The HMS Belfast is an imposing museum ship that offers tourists the chance to explore one of the few bombardment vessels that still remain from the Normandy Landings.

Those more keen on enjoying Borough’s numerous galleries and exhibitions will find them lined along Bermondsey Street, a lively hub of all things kooky, quirky and cultural. The London Glassblowing exhibition, the White Cube art gallery and the Fashion and Textile Museum provide the area with a range of well-regarded cultural institutions. South Bank is also close by and offers the chance to visit one of the city’s most renowned art galleries, The Tate Modern.

Places to eat in Borough

Understandably, many of Borough’s top restaurants and places to eat can be found near Borough Market. Once a centre of traditional and local cuisines, the market has since evolved and now reflects London’s diverse, cosmopolitan culture with an array of restaurants and food stalls offering cuisines from all around the world.

For those keen on getting a drink in a truly unique location, The Shard’s Gong bar, located on its 52nd floor, is an ideal spot for anyone who enjoys glamorous, unparalleled views with their drinks. Gong is a sleek Asian-themed bar, known to be the highest bar in Europe. With a large selection of cocktails and a luxurious infinity pool, it has an irresistible appeal to any visitor.
