Just over seven years I published a blog on Borough Market. At that point I was still discovering the area around Southwark Cathedral, The Shard was still under construction and the Thameslink expansion to London Bridge Station and associated viaduct through Borough Market was still in progress.
We entered Borough Market from Borough High Street and the first thing you sense is the various smells from the many stalls. All lot of them we selling food on the go.
Heading across Cathedral Street, there is the Beard Ahead Bakery, which includes a Baking School.
Into the western side of the market, there are many other stalls.
Leaving Borough Market via Park Street, there are many eateries, including The Market Porter, Little Dorritt and this one, German Deli.
Once underneath the railway viaduct, there is a memorial to an International Incident that occured in 1850.
The Austrian General, Julius Jacob von Haynau, whilst on a brewery tour of Bankside, was chased from Borough Market local residents, workers and the brewery drayman. In Park Street he was flogged by the mob and had manure and dirt thrown over him. Allegedly an attempt was made to cut his moustache off.
