Camden – famed for its markets and as a hub of London’s alternative scene, there’s no shortage to discover in this eclectic area.
This is one of London’s liveliest neighbourhoods – a mix of cultures and ages rubbing along together – creating a spark other areas in the city can only eye jealously.
Looking at the eclectic loveable mishmash that is Camden today, it’s difficult to believe it was once a genteel area of open fields and pretty much only two buildings (one of which is the World’s End pub).
Spend time mooching around the world-famous markets and pop into the bars and pubs that once were the haunt of London’s musical renegades – including the area’s much-loved Amy Winehouse. There’s street art too, around almost every corner and popping up in the most unlikely of places.
