Nothing quite like sitting down with a cold, crisp glass of wine after a stroll along the south bank.

Why not explore the nearby areas of Southwark, Borough, Elephant and Castle, Kennington, City, Covent Garden, Walworth, Westminster, Barbican and Holborn

"One of London's most popular markets, Borough food market is open to the public from Wednesday through to Saturday, can trace its history back to the eleventh century, but in 1754, it had got so big and congested, that Parliament decreed to abolish it. A year later, some local residents acquired an alternative location nearby and it started up again."

The regeneration of the Lambeth area is continuing at a pace...keep your eye on this part of London.
