We are hoping to make it to Borough Market but are having a tough time fitting it in because Saturday at lunch is when we want to visit. However, I keep reading avoid it on a Saturday at lunch AT ALL COSTS.
We will start our Saturday doing a guided walking tour of Westminster so can easily hop on the tube to Borough Market, Maltby Street and Duke of York for a 1:00 pm lunch. Taking into account crowds and vendors, which one would you go to and which one would you avoid?
And... if we head to one of the smaller markets, is the limited version of Borough Market worth going to on a Monday or Tuesday after Tower of London? Or... at that point... would lunch in a historic pub like Ye Ole Cheshire Cheese be a better experience?
I know so much of this is personal preference; I'd just love some thoughts of other tourists and locals. Thank you!
