Take a walk under Borough Market’s famous Victorian arches and you will discover a playground for the senses: from the bustle of traders to the colourful greengrocer displays, to the smells of cheese, coffee and briny seafood wafting through the air. As London’s oldest market with over 110 traders selling both British and international produce, Borough Market has something for everyone. The colours, sights, sounds and tastes make it easy to see why this ancient market is one of the capital’s top attractions. But there is also a world to discover beyond what the eye can see. Allow our guides to take you to the real heart of Borough Market and the stories that can be found behind the stalls.
Meet in our cookery school in one of the Market’s lovely historic buildings and join our multisensory tour taking in the sights, smells, sounds, sights and tastes of Borough Market. You will meet our friends, taste their wares and discover why this culinary mecca is loved by so many. The tour ends with a food and wine pairing at our cooking school or pintxos bar.
This delicious, unforgettable tour takes you to the heart of London’s most popular attraction: Borough Market. The market’s roots date back over 1000 years, and it’s been in the same exact spot for the last 300. Tradition is strong, and our expert guides will take you around the market, introduce you to the characters and artisans, and give you tastes of the best the market has to offer along the way.
The stalls at Borough Market overflow with the harvest from country fields, and behind each purveyor is a story that Mimo believes in. Join our tour to taste, see, and hear about the beauty behind Borough. You will meet our friends, taste their wares, and visit the spots in the market that are must-eats.
