Borough Market and beyond

While Borough Market is firmly on the tourist trail, I will show you the hidden history that not even the locals know. Starting from the famous market we will wander and discover the heroes and villains that makes Borough such an amazing place. Behind the waterfront, with Tate Modern and the Global, there is a maze of streets, with 2,000 years of history to uncover.

We will hear about Shakespeare and his rivals, who inspired Dickens and Bankside's dark side!

An excellent way to find out more about this amazing part of London, with a qualified London tour guide.

Guarantee only small groups, meeting Covid-19 safety measures and away from the crowds in the quiet backstreets. This is a family friendly tour.
