Where do Camden Town locals go?

Edinboro Castle

This pub has an amazing beer garden that is great during the summer months!

Anima e Cuore

From the outside, Anima e Cuore looks like a gelateria and café, but this teeny tiny restaurant serves amazing Italian food at a very reasonable price. The menu is read by the waiters and changed daily. It books up very fast and it's BYOB!


A great burrito place that usually gives out tasters every day.

Camden Lock

As well as browsing the market, Camden Lock is a great place to hang out and enjoy the sunset.

Camden Market

Wandering through one of the many stalls in Camden Market, there's always something to catch the eye!


For music lovers there is the famous Roundhouse venue, which has amazing views from anywhere inside and great sound for a brilliant night out!


A restaurant/bar/club serving pan-Asian food cooked by the amazing chef Ian Pengelley. You can dine and enjoy the bar area at the same time.

Camden Coffee Shop

Coffee beans from a lovely old man who roasts the beans himself and has done for decades. He will also grind them for you...

Shaka Zulu

A little taste of Africa. Great ambience, incredible South African Zulu statues and if that doesn't win you over, the all day 2-4-1 cocktails will!

The Lord Stanley

Just off Camden Road, this pub does the best sausage and mash!

Rock 'N' Roll Rescue

A one stop shop for music lovers!

The Blues Kitchen

This American themed restaurant is fantastic! Not only is the food very tasty, but the atmosphere is electric - live music on a Friday and Saturday and distinctive tasting cocktails draw in a big crowd.


A BrewDog pub just off Camden High Street serving craft beers.

The Coffee Jar

The best coffee in Camden along with some great sandwiches and cakes.

Ferreira Delicatessen

The best toasted sandwiches in Camden made to order and excellent Portuguese custard tarts.
