What to do in Camden Town

Camden Town Hotels

The zaniest, most colourful north London district, Camden Town is a feast for the senses. Traffic stacks up along Camden High Street while punks, goths, and wide-eyed tourists fill the pavements, moving slightly faster than the cars. Beyond the tattoo parlours and vintage fashion boutiques, Camden markets open up, drawing you in to a world tour of crafts and cuisine. Beyond this frenetic centre, a calmer side to Camden does exist, with tranquil parks and boho-chic neighbourhoods to relax in.

Things to see

Camden Lock Market is the life and soul of this eclectic district, where you could easily spend the entire day. Hippies, artists and street food chefs gather beneath makeshift canopies and wooden struts, touting a dazzling array of colourful wares. In the food section, Indian curry competes with Venezuelan arepas to tingle your taste buds, while the craft markets overflow with ream upon ream of colourful fabrics and trinkets to catch the eye of any magpie. Just a short walk from this thronging, canal-side marketplace, you can find Primrose Hill, a favourite hangout of local celebs and a popular film location. It’s easy to see why filmmakers and stars love it – the tranquil, verdant surroundings are complemented by views of the city, providing that perfect London balance of urbanity and nature. Further south, London Zoo in Regent’s Park is ideal for family excursions, where you can encounter monkeys and tigers.
