"South Kentish tube station was closed for a power cut in 1924, but when power was restored, so few passengers used the station, that it was decided to not bother re-opening it."

With its vibrant atmosphere day and night, Camden is one of London's most popular destinations.

Samuel Burke

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