Borough Market

Borough Market is one of the oldest fruit and vegetable markets in London with a history going back to at least 1276. This wholesale market does most of its business early in the morning.

New businesses building on the culinary tradition include a cheese maker, a micro brewery and a luxury cake shop. Opening times: Friday 12am-6pm and Saturday 9am-4pm.

St Katharine's Dock

For over a thousand years the site of St Katharine Docks has been a focus of commerce and human endeavour.

Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre is built on a site 200m from the original Globe Theatre. The first Globe was built in 1599 and held around 3,000 people. Shakespeare was a part owner of the theatre and many of his greatest plays were performed there. The Globe was one of many theatres on Bankside. It was demolished in 1646, but the determination of the American actor Sam Wanamaker led to today’s reconstruction.

Prospect of Whitby

The Prospect of Whitby (once nicknamed 'Beanies') formerly 'The Devils Tavern' was frequented in his day by the infamous Judge Jeffries,  whose victims were chained up in the river at low tide and left there while several tides washed over them. Later Jeffries was caught by the London mob after hiding in 'The Town of Ramsgate' nearby and beaten, ending his days in the Tower of London. The pub was gutted by fire in the 17th Century and when rebuilt was renamed after the Whitby collier that moored up alongside when delivering to London. A third pub in the locality is 'The Captain Kidd', only more recently converted into a public house and named after the Scottish pirate who was hung nearby in 1701.
