A TASTE OF BOROUGH MARKET, WITH CELIA BROOKS
Join passionate food expert, TV chef and author Celia Brooks for an educational and entertaining tour of Borough Market.
Celia founded the first tasting tour of Borough Market over 20 years ago, and her experience and knowledge is vast. You’ll start your tour with a meet and greet over drinks and nibbles, before launching into the Market for generous tastings of food and wine. Celia will illuminate the Market’s fascinating history, introduce you to the traders, and highlight some of the dazzling array of produce available, explaining where it comes from and how it’s made – including the finest meats, seafood, cheeses and delectable sweet treats, to name just a few. All diets can be catered for where possible.
Celia runs public tours on selected Friday mornings from 10am – 1pm – pre-booking is essential, and gift vouchers are available. Or you can book a private tour to suit your requirements on any weekday. For further info and booking, please visit Celia’s website.
BEHIND-THE-SCENES TOUR, WITH TOTALLY TAILORED
Enjoy a private tour – just you and your friends, family or colleagues – for a tour behind the scenes of Borough Market, exploring the people, the place, the food, the history, and the significance of the Market to the wider local area.
Led by a highly knowledgeable guide from Totally Tailored, this 2½ hour tour takes in the many nooks and crannies of Borough, includes talks and tastings from traders (tea, cheese, charcuterie, oysters, and more), and ends in a hidden wine warehouse with a glass of English sparkling wine.
PERSONAL SHOPPING EXPERIENCE
Borough Market sells personal shopping vouchers, which can be redeemed as part of a Personal Shopping Experience.
Borough’s own in-house personal shopping assistant will guide you around our historic halls and alleyways and introduce you to the traders, who will be able to share the compelling stories behind their produce and help inform your purchases.
