Description
Camden Town is hip, a place of alternative clubs and music venues. The late Amy Winehouse often frequented this neighborhood, a testament to Camden Town’s “cool” factor. As with all hot spots, ... Read more

Camden is a stack of fun! The markets are an absolute must and you can easily spend a whole day in there. The vibes are good and the food is great, don't miss it if you're in London.

The Camden Town market is by far the best in London. The food is so good that you might have some trouble deciding!

Whatever you are looking for, you will find it here. Dig a little bit for the best food, and don't miss Inverness market too.

I love this hip area of town. There's loads of shopping with fun market and food stalls. It's fun to come here to people watch, browse the numerous stalls, and get bites to eat from all of the stalls.

Make sure to go at the weekends when the markets are in full force and you can spend hours browsing the stalls and munching on street food. This place gets really busy so be prepared. Also, the nearest tube stop has a habit of closing with no notice so you might need to walk to the next one to get back home.

Located just 10 mins walk from the flat, quirky Camden is a great day out. Visit the market for cool clothes and tastes of what the stalls have to offer.

Camden Town is a lovely, thoroughly entertaining little borough in London filled with street stalls and merchants, food markets, and a sort of quaint vintage feel to London without being overly pretentious. We spent an entire day here, browsing the stalls and enjoying delicious food.

Camden is absolutely one of my favorite places in London. Great for going for a wander, checking out the stores and markets, and grabbing a bite to eat. It's one of the places in London I make sure to return to every time I visit!

Very much catering for the tourists these days more so than the locals but still worth a visit.

Very cool, eclectic market, offering antiques, tapestries, punk rock clothes, and other oddities in stalls set in the old Camden stables. This was where the punk rock scene in the 70s and early 80s was centered. Not still here, but still has a cool vibe. Gets very crowded on weekends and is a great place for people watching. Food stalls offer up good things to eat.

Camden Town has been a residential area since the 1790s, but it was only the development of the Grand Union Canal and the improved railway transport that turned it into a bustling part of London. Today, visitors and locals gather to hunt for treasures in Camden's markets, stroll by Regent's Canal, gaze at the beautiful buildings, sample cuisine from around the world, listen to live music and soak up the vibrant and diverse atmosphere. Many famous people, including Dylan Thomas, Walter Sickert and Amy Winehouse, have made Camden their home.

This was a funky, alternative, artsy district of London with good food and indie shopping. Lately it may be getting more mainstream.

Super crowded, but great vibe and fun atmosphere. I liked the lock and stables best as it wasn't as much of a crush.
