Borough Market and beyond

Dr Stephen King

Select Option


This is a backstreets of Borough tour. While Borough Market is firmly on the tourist trail, I will show you the hidden history that only 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.

Guarantee only small groups and this is a family friendly tour.
