"Hidden below Camden Lock market are a web of vaults and passageways which were once used to stable pit ponies for the nearby canals. While most are closed to the public, some sections can be spotted from the market."

Just up the road from Camden, Kentish Town has the same vibrancy and a bustling high street full of independent businesses.
