Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Borough Market

This is  London's oldest fruit and vegetable market and was voted the top tourist attraction a couple of years ago. It is situated off Borough High street which is near London Bridge.


There has been a market  here since the 13th century. Nowadays it consists of a number of small often local producers of specialist products. The quality of the produce is quality controlled ensuring that only the best is allowed to be sold. But don't go here looking for a bargain as prices can be quite steep.



The plastic bags full of water hanging above he fish apparently keep the flies away!
No market would be any good without a pub across the road.
