Borough Market, situated an easy walk from One Tower Bridge, has become a destination of choice for discerning foodies in London. Since 1756 it's been providing quality produce to Londoners, although its origins can be traced as far back as 1276, and there are even claims dating it back to 1014.
Thanks to its location near the wharves of the Pool Of London, Borough Market became the most important food market in London. Along with Covent Garden it supplied the vast majority of fruit and vegetables to retailers in London, and it offered both local goods as well as imported delicacies.
These days the market specialises in selling organic and authentic foods from around the globe direct to consumers. This shift was prompted by cheese specialists Neal's Yard setting up shop in the market during the 1990s, swiftly followed by other niche food producers such as Brindisa, a Spanish deli.
Wandering around Borough Market is a delight for the senses as the smells and flavours of wildly different foods mingle in the air: luxury ice creams, exotic fruits, herbs, spices, charcuterie and cheeses are just a few of the delights on offer. It's a gourmand's paradise, and somewhere it's easy to spend a little more than you intended to on ingredients for supper.
The market has also been championed by TV chefs who find the range and quality of what's on offer to be beyond compare. And just to add a bit of glamour, Borough Market has also been used as a shooting location for several high profile films including Bridget Jones's Diary and Harry Potter.
If you're a passionate amateur cook, or simply love to indulge your taste buds, Borough Market will become your playground when living at One Tower Bridge.
One Tower Bridge occupies a prime position on London's South Bank, between three of the city's most important icons: Tower Bridge, the River Thames and the Tower of London. It is an exceptional new development of contemporary residencies, thoughtfully designed and luxuriously appointed throughout.
Within walking distance of the City's financial heart, close to Canary Wharf, next to a string of world-class cultural attractions and enjoying first-rate transport connections, One Tower Brudge justifies the description 'extraordinary'.
