DESCRIPTION

Borough Market is one of the most famous markets in London and offers a great variety of both local and international products. It also happens to be London’s oldest market as it was established in Roman times!
Located on the southern side of the London Bridge, Borough Market is a thriving food hall with a unique, old world charm. Here, a bewildering gathering of great, passionate producers sell their specialties to both London connoisseurs and curious visitors.
After meeting your private food-loving guide, who also happens to be one of the very few handpicked experts approved by Borough Market to run tours, follow her as she takes you to the heart of Borough Market.
She will tell you all about the market, and the products you can find here, but you can also tell her what you and your children like, and there is a good chance you will find great products here corresponding to your tastes. The many stops along the way will enable you and your children to taste these local and international products. From fresh vegetables and fruits to tasty English cheeses to exotic Thai or Indian products, Borough Market has it all.

FAQ's
Is this a private activity?
It sure is. Your family members will be the only ones participating in this food tour. There will be other people (regular clients and visitors) in the market obviously as it is not made private.
Are the parents staying with the children or separated?
We always promote a family-bonding moment, where parents and children enjoy an activity together as a family. So, parents and children will not be separated. However, if you choose to send your children on this activity alone, it is possible, provided that a babysitter accompanies the children regardless of the age, for insurance purposes (our guides are not responsible for the children).
How much food will we be tasting?
The quantity of food tasted would be equivalent to a full (normal sized) meal for adults.
Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?
Kids under 6 years old are welcome to join. They might not like all the food tasted, but they can at least try. Just remember that the foodie guide is not a babysitter.
Is the food gluten free / can you cope with food allergies or other intolerances?
We can adapt to any food allergy or intolerance as long as this information has been given to us prior to the day of the activity. If information is given during the tour, your guide will do their best to adapt to your needs and tastes.
Can you make kosher food tastings (or any other special meals)?
Yes we can. Here too, please give this information ahead of time so the tour can be adapted. Depending on the price of the meals in the area, extra costs may or may not be added.
What if it rains?
Borough Market is mostly a covered market so it should be fine.
