Where do Camden Town locals go?

Gilgamesh

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 Market

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

Chilango

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

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!

Côte

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

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 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.

The Lord Stanley

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

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!

Edinboro Castle

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

BrewDog

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

Ferreira Delicatessen

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

The Underworld

One of the best venues for rock and metal bands and club nights opposite Camden Town Underground Station.

Hook

An alternative fish and chip restaurant selling a tasty British classic with unusual culinary twists.

Camden Lock

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

"Camden Town never disappoints, it feels like there's always a new bar or restaurant to discover! Camden Market is second to none for exploration and finding unique, quirky items on craft stalls, and not forgetting the amazing food hall!!"

"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."
