London has many beautiful city parks including the Kew Botanical Gardens.
Iconic landmarks include the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and the London Eye.
Farmers markets are becoming more popular. The labour and green candidates to Mayor of London are pushing a lot to open new markets in the various London Boroughs, trying to reduce the thousands of miles goods travel.
Borough Market is London’s oldest wholesale fruit and vegetable market. It was established on the south bank of the Thames when the Romans built the first London Bridge. Come early and bring a large, strong bag. Opening times for the public are Thursdays 11am-5pm, Fridays, 12pm-6pm and Saturdays 9am-4pm.
London farmers markets is a small company that exists to provide Londoners with fresh local food, and to provide farmers with a good return for their work. Producers come from within 100 miles and must raise, grow or bake everything they sell.
