Maltby Street Market
Venture south of the river for this darling gourmand gathering under the railway arches, where savvy locals go to escape the fanny-packed hordes of Borough. A wholesale market on weekdays, come here to stock up on top-notch, artisan sips and bites from the likes of The Cheese Truck, London Honey Company and 8th-gen butcher O’Shea’s. There’s even a hipster-run mead stall – how medieval.
Ropewalk Maltby Street SE1
Brown's English Tea Room
The stylista’s secret mwah and cha tryster. Queen Vic once sipped here, and there’s still a right royal spread to prove it, with over 17 teas, pretty-as-a-pic sweet and savoury bites and your choice of bubbles.

The Coral Room
Flit with the bright young things at this luminescent, Martin Brudzinski-designed va-va voom room within the Bloomsbury Hotel. Statement chandeliers, gleaming mother of pearl, sumptuous teal velvet sofas and pink-hued everything else are nods to 1920s decadence. Just add in razor-sharp service. Go.
