Police riot vans with sirens blazing, streets of football fans booming out chants and an automated bird-call squawking at regular individuals throughout the day. This was the surrounding environment during a sign writing course I took in London Borough Market.
It was extremely loud.
To add to this, the course was held within the Market Hall, next to the outer glass wall which extends onto the High Street.
Noises of people and traffic sat one side, while the hustle and bustle of the market sat the other.
