Borough Market provides a labyrinth of market stalls selling food and beverages to explore and enjoy. It's fairly level access with the odd cobblestone to negotiate.

Transport & Parking


Arriving by tube from London Bridge I found it fairly easy to get to with short walk from the station into Borough High Street and then into the Market. There's a covered passage way on the far side of the street that takes you from the High Street into the market area. It does have a bit of a slope downward so you can avoid that by going a few metres further down the High Street where you go in via the Market Hall - a glass looking building with loads of seats, plants and an accessible loo.



Getting around the market and amongst the stalls was fairly easy as it's all tarmac. There are some cobbled strips that you have to go over but these are quite narrow so not too difficult. The stalls are well spread out across the site with some small lanes running in between. It was easy to see everything and enjoy the smells, sounds and taste of the bustling market.



There is a accessible toilet in the Market Hall that's next door to the conventional loos. It's tucked away so it's best to go into the middle of the hall and look back toward the market and you will see it on the right. It's a long and narrow layout so for some wheelchair users it may well mean wheeling in and reversing out. It's well provisioned and modern and clean.



The market traders and Borough Market staff were very helpful during the visit.

Great review! Another London venue that I didn't know was accessible... I visited for the first time earlier this year - a very tasty experience!
