London Borough of Southwark - Voted by the people

Site: Borough Market (4 memorials)

SE1, Middle Road, Borough Market

Note: the colonnade with glazed upper section that fronts this building on Stoney Street was not designed for this location.  Londonist informs: "The façade grafted onto this particular part of Borough Market is actually the old E M Barry-designed Floral Hall from the Royal Opera House {Covent Garden}, which was put in storage when the Opera House was done up in the 1990s. It was bought by Borough Market for £1 and added to the building around 2003."
