Explore the world-famous Tate Modern

One of the most visited museums and art galleries in the world, the Tate Modern is a prime feature of the London skyline and an integral part of the capital’s cultural milieu. It houses modern art from about 1900 to the present day, including masterpieces like Picasso’s The Three Dancers and Dali’s Autumnal Cannibalism. Exhibits are changed on a regular basis so no two visits are likely to be the same. The best part is, the entrance is free.

Shop ‘til you drop at Borough Market

One of the largest and most famous in London, Borough Market celebrates good food and drink through hundreds of stalls selling the tastiest street food, the highest quality wines and cheeses, the most decadent desserts and sweet treats, the freshest bread and charcuterie, and other speciality foods from around the world. The entrance is built in the Art Deco style and possibly best-known for being a film location of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

Eating out in Southwark

For a dimly lit curry restaurant located in the basement of Borough Market, you might not have big expectations of Silka, but this gem has rave reviews from hundreds of patrons saying that this was the best Indian food they have ever had in their lives. Honest Burgers is another favourite that is frequented by locals for their delicious brunches. For a slightly more upscale sit-down dining experience, head to Casa do Frango for classic Portuguese barbecue plates. Their almond cake is a sure shot hit.
