Londoners have been stuffing themselves so full of dirty burgers and greasy American nonsense lately that they’ve almost forgotten about the Great British Seaside. Bonnie Gull are putting that right, setting up shop in a fully themed beach shack in Fitzrovia. There’s bleached wood, a map showing the catch of the day and a treasure chest full of langoustines. What more could you want?
Last weekend I decided to take a trip to Borough to have a look at one of London’s most famous food markets. The market itself was good fun, and I’d recommend it if you’re looking for something to interesting to do on a lazy saturday. If you’re actually looking to buy any food though, I wouldn’t bother. You’ll be old by the time you reach the front of the queue at any of the stalls. Really, the crowds are obscene. The market is worth a visit, though, for nearby restaurant Wright Brothers.
