Camden Town is a place synonymous with individuality and creativity. It is one of the most visited places in the world, and one of London’s top tourist destinations. Well known today for being the late Amy Winehouse’s former stomping ground, more than 100,000 visitors head to Camden Town EVERY WEEKEND; and it’s not hard to see why.
Camden Town literally buzzes with energy, creativity, and colour. It’s a cultural melting pot; home to a cross-section of sub-cultures. With its edgy vibe and eclectic mix of live music, street performers, vibrant music venues, food stalls, global cuisines, museums, theatres and its famous labyrinth of open-air markets; Camden is certainly a jewel in the capital’s crown – unbeatable in its diversity, quirkiness, and buzz.
But it’s not all Goths and joss sticks. There’s a much more peaceful and elite side to be explored; the quiet residential streets and squares, the canal, the museums, and the theatres. There’s also plenty of open green space to enjoy. Primrose Hill, with its breath-taking views and Regents Park, are just a stroll away.
What’s on There?
In Camden, you’re never far from a pub. Try The Worlds End (right opposite Camden Town tube station) for its cool mezzanine and giant tanks of Staropramen, Edinboro Castle for its massive beer garden, quirky charm and Pimms on tap, Joe’s for its incredible paint job and excellent DJ’S (if you want late one) or even The Black Heart – if you want to go to the most goth friendly pub ever.
Camden has an incredible live music scene and more than its fair share of iconic music venues. Koko, Jazz Café, The Garage, Electric Ballroom, Barfly, The Enterprise and Dingwalls are some of the best.
Then there are the markets, perhaps Camden’s most famous feature. Camden Lock Market, Camden Lock Village, Camden Market, Inverness Street Market, and the Stables Market. Those should keep even the most tireless shopper busy for a while.
What’s the residential community like?
There’s a strong sense of community in Camden Town. It really is home to anyone who wishes to call it so.
