This week I’ve been enjoying acting like a tourist in my own city. I sometimes think I don’t take advantage enough of living in London – sticking to the areas I know and love rather than exploring everything this incredible city has to offer. My Thursday trip to Borough Market was something of a compromise – somewhere I love, but haven’t got round to revisiting for well over a year. I spent the morning at the market, establishing a great routine of wander, find something to eat, sit in the sunshine and eat, and repeat. In the afternoon I walked from the market all the way to Hyde Park (a good hour and a half or so at a leisurely pace in the sunshine), taking in all the sights of Southbank, the Tate, the London Eye, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, the Mall and the Houses of Parliament on my way. I loved seeing the city at it’s best in the blazing sun and felt truly proud to be a Londoner! I thought I’d share a few photos from my Borough Market with you today – enjoy!
This was just a small selection of the unusual meats offered by the aptly named Exotic Meat Company – they also had kangroo, crocodile, elk and ostrich on offer! I was very intrigued but wimped out – has anyone else tried?!My gorgeous Lemon, Lime and Basil goats milk ice cream from Greedy Goat – the ultimate refreshment. I also ate (too speedily to get a photo of) gorgeous gnocchi stuffed with tomato and mozzarella served with tomato sauce from La Tua Pasta and several different types of fudge, including a great salted caramel fudge, from Whirld so I would highly recommend all 3 stalls!
