London's cultural icon. Been here numerous times over the years but always love coming back. The atmosphere and ambience is just amazing. It's always packed but weekdays before lunch is the best time to go. Food stalls are always buzzing providing fresh produce- a must visit for all tourists and repeat visits for Londoners. Highly recommended!!
We went there unknowingly and found a jewel in the hart of the city. The market is the best place if you want to try out the food and delicacies available in London. The fish and chips had here were the best. They also sell the city's finest caramel fridge. Multiple flavors are available in the sticky fudge section. A must try for all food lovers visiting London.
