Borough Market & Beyond

Because of the recent mining disaster in Turkey, the Turkish Day in Trafalgar Square has been postponed, so let's take this opportunity to visit Borough Market and enjoy the colours, flavours and people - as well as the opportunity for many portraits and close-up shots. Please bring a huge appetite, as you'll need it!

Once we've finished with the market, we'll explore the surrounding area, including Southwark Cathedral and the Thames Path, past the Globe, Tate Modern and Millennium Bridge, with all the activities taking place along there. 

It's been quite a few months since the group's last visit there; here are our photos from the last time: www.meetup.com/Simple-Street-Photo-Meet/photos/[masked]/

The pub does not open till 11am, so please don't arrive before then. We'll wait in the pub till 12ish then head over to the Market as a group.

Please pay in cash on the day, and my phone number, if you need it, is 07955 861414.

    I'm so so sorry for arriving late - the perils of freelancing! Many thanks for everyone who came, it was a lovely afternoon!

    As Burak has said below, the original Turkish Day event planned for Saturday has been postponed (not cancelled) because of today's mining disaster, so I've changed this to a trip to Borough Market and the Thames Path.

    Hello, just to let you know that Turkish Day has been cancelled due to the unfortunate accident at a mining site in Turkey where hundreds of people lost their lives..

    Hi Chantal I will be looking forward to this, but its likely I will be arriving a bit late. I will try and catch you and the group at Trafalgar square if that's ok.

      That's fine - text me or phone me when you're near, and I'll help you find us.
