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.


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

Camden Lock

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

The Hill

With a menu of freshly prepared lunch and dinner dishes, this place does a great sirloin steak and pepper sauce!

Camden Market

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

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!

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!


Serving organic food and drink ideal for a quick brunch. Wholesome meals, delicious salads and a variety of smoothies that are nice too.

Primrose Hill

The best spot for a picnic or a quick run!

Kentish Town Sports Centre

Recently renovated, this leisure centre set in a historic Grade II listed building has a swimming pool and a gym.

A real lunchtime treat, this restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere also operates as a cafe and deli.

Orange Juice Stall

A small stall based on Camden High street offering freshly squeezed orange juice, either bitter, sweet or sour. The sweet oranges are amazing!


Delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner in French-style interiors. They do a fantastic set menu too, which is a real bargain.

A one stop shop for music lovers!

  1. About Chalk Farm

    Chalk Farm is an area of north London. It lies directly to the north of Camden Town and its underground station is the closest tube station to the nearby, upmarket neighbourhood of Primrose Hill. Its name, deceptively rural, derives from the Anglo Saxon Old English language for 'cold cottages'. These days it absorbs the spread from Camden Town and has many lively pubs, live music venues, and restaurants. Within London it is best known as the site of The Roundhouse, a former circular railway engine shed which was subsequently converted for arts and performance use.
