Borough, at the southern end of London Bridge, was once the only borough outside the City of London itself, hence the name origins. Now it is an increasingly popular central London location, and a mecca for foodies. Borough’s spine is Borough High Street, which is the home to a never-ending selection of eateries and watering holes.

Borough LOCAL’S TIPS
No tips section for Borough would be complete without a mention of Borough Market. This market offers incredible food, from all over Britain, in a historic setting. Pick up some fresh, local produce or get lunch on the go from one of the street food vendors.
If you’re looking for an activity that is a bit more unique, head to Crossbones Graveyard, a short walk from The Shard. This is the site of an old burial ground. For centuries it was a pauper’s graveyard, for the area formerly known as The Mint, one of London’s poorest and most violent slums. By the time the graveyard closed in 1853 it held the remains of an estimated 15000 paupers. Now the graveyard is a place for remembrance.
