GUTOM TRAVELS – BOROUGH MARKET LONDON ENGLAND UK PAELLA DUCK CONFIT

What’s up Gutomers! Celebrating our 100th Video.

Have a short layover in London? Check out our video from Borough Market, in London, England.

Getting to BOROUGH MARKET FROM GATWICK AIRPORT is easy.

Take Thameslink to London Bridge. Walk a little bit from London Bridge station and you will find the market. You will need an Oyster Card to purchase your train ticket. An Oyster card contains your electronic funds for transit. There are Oyster Card vendors in the airport.

BOROUGH MARKET established in 1014 is at South End of London Bridge.

A perfect place to grab lunch if you’re passing through London
on a Layover or Stopover.

The ART DECO style transports you to a different time!

You’ll soon notice that cooking in large woks is very popular in the market!

The market has a large variety of food vendors, and artisan shops.
Choosing what to eat can be a challenge. The food is very international.

What We Ordered:

Bomba Paella £7 ($12 Canadian)
Chicken, Seafood, and Chorizo.

A nice combination of seafood but a little difficult to eat with a fork!
The paella was hot, and fresh. Careful you might burn your mouth!

Duck Confit Sandwich £6 ($10 Canadian) at Le Marche du Quatier.
This was a ok sandwich. The bread was hard, and the duck was a little overcooked.
Perhaps a bad batch?

During the busy lunch hour be prepared to queue up for popular eateries.

There is something for everyone here at Borough Market.
Prices seem reasonable, even local office workers and students eat here.

Take a walk over the bridge to Liverpool Street Station
to catch a train to Standsted Airport if you have a connecting flight.

This is a great place to visit!
