Borough’s name may seem a little odd at first, but it derives from once being London’s only borough that lay outside the city centre. Indeed, its outsider status meant that lots of shenanigans took place in the district. From boozy inns to raucous theatres, Borough was once known as one of the most debauched parts of London.
Since then, it has managed to clean up its act whilst retaining much of its character. As well as an array of popular theatres, Borough is replete with atmospheric pubs dating back hundreds of years. It is also home to Borough Market, to which tourists and locals flock in their droves. Working in Borough, then, is never a dull experience. Whether you fancy heading out for a midday snack or are looking to entertain partners or new clients in the evening, Borough has everything you need and more.
Finally, it is also worth noting that Borough is very easy to get to. Close to both London Bridge and Waterloo, there are plenty of train and tube services ready to shuttle tired workers home at the end of the day.
