About Camden Town, Market & Locks
Camden Town is a fascinating fusion of art, culture and fashion styles located in the Northern London Borough of Camden. To fully enjoy your visit, be sure to expect the unexpected.
Buskers readily greet you on the subways, impressive graffiti are splashed on the walls, and mannequins line up the gutters, challenging you to experience all that Camden Town has to offer in just a single day.
The place is inundated with alternative subcultures: goths, rockers, punks and the captivated tourists. Think Amy Winehouse and you get the idea. In fact, Camden Town is the jazz singer’s hometown, and before her death, she managed to visit every chance she got.
Residents living in Victorian houses or modern apartment complexes congregate at the famous Camden Market, where you find handmade trinkets, wooden sculptures and old toy collectables. Visitors look forward to scouring the stalls for surprising finds that they didn’t know they wanted before. Horse statues are found everywhere, serving as an allusion to the place’s history as a stable for horses.
Even the food selection yanks you from the comfort of convenient familiarity. In just one section of the market, you will find stalls that offer Mexican, Thai and Indian cuisine. You are also free to settle for a simple meal consisting of grilled barbecues and pizza.
After a day of shopping for clothes, ornaments and gifts, you might fancy a boat ride along the Regent’s Canal. Your night won’t be complete without a drink or two. Fortunately in Camden Town, there’s a pub for every whim. Lloyd’s Bar, located at the canal, lets you have a pint while dipping your toes in the water. The Elephant’s Head is good for watching, be it football on the TV or people through the huge glass windows. Right across from Camden Tube Station is The Worlds End, a pub rich in history and opportunity for intimate gatherings or whatnot.
Camden Town is essentially a specialty shop, but on a much bigger scale—the perfect London destination to forget that you’re a tourist.
