As it’s Burns Night, I thought it’d be an idea to head off to an area with genuine Scottish connections, starting at The Parcel Yard in King’s Cross station – http://www.parcelyard.co.uk/ – which is at the top of the steps between platforms 9 and 9 3/4. We’ll be in the main bar area at the back of the pub.

The plan is to move on to the King Charles I, 55-57 Northdown Street, N1 9BL – https://whatpub.com/pubs/NLD/5551/king-charles-i-london – at around 8.30 and then The Scottish Stores, 2-4 Caledonian Road, N1 9DT – http://www.thescottishstores.co.uk – at around 9.45.

New Year in Borough Market

Globe

The Globe Tavern, 8 Bedale Street, SE1 9AL
– http://www.theglobeboroughmarket.com/#the-bar-home – is probably best known for its role in Bridget Jones’s Diary.

The nearest underground station is London Bridge – take the exit for Borough High Street (east side), turn right, cross over the main road and you’ll find the pub about 30 yards or so along Bedale Street, just beyond the railway bridge. I couldn’t see a sign for Bedale Street when I did the recce, but if you’ve got Leon on your left and Borough Market Hall (a glass building) on your right you’ve found the right street.

The plan is to move on to The Rake, 14A Winchester Walk, SE1 9AG – https://boroughmarket.org.uk/traders/the-rake – previously the cafe for the original local market, at around 8.45 and then The Market Porter, 9 Stoney Street, SE1 9AA
– https://www.themarketporter.co.uk – a traditional and unspoilt market pub, at around 10.00.
