  • The market is great, lots of different quirky stalls with reasonable prices. We really like Marie's cafe: a mixture of a traditional English cooking and a Thai food. We love the Thai menu which is goo...  more »

  • Historic place. Great for food from different cultures. Noted for tourists, workers and City dwellers.
  • It's a lovely little food market with lots of variety from different countries. Definitely recommend as a lunch option
  • Great food market, with lots of choice. The falafel stall is a favourite, with a basic starting at £3.50. The staff are great too. Other stalls are more around the £5-6 mark, which for me is more of a monthly treat! There are some other stalls with other items but the food is the main draw. The two fruit stands are a little reduced in choice compared with other markets but still ok.
  • When I first knew this market it was full of fresh fruit and cheap clothes, but now it's had a makeover which we be going on for a few years to come. Gone is the decrepit 'Steve's bed & breakfast' to make way for a smart hotel. The independently run small shops are being shut down to make way for bigger things. One fascinating shop is where railway enthusiasts buy specialist books on rails and the war, and parts for their model railways.The quiet road is lined on one side at lunch times with bright stalls selling mainly food from many parts of the world. There's La Barca, an Italian restaurant at the end closest to the Old Vic theatre and Cubana, from guess where? They're both well established and popular. But we hear that the ownership of Cubana is being taken over and don't know what the outcome is. Lower Marsh looks a bit run down at the moment, but it's in the process of regeneration so we have to look forward to the future.
  • Very good food! Great place to go for lunch and great people.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
