Why not explore the nearby areas of Camden, Regent's Park, Kentish Town, Euston, Caledonian Road, Belsize Park, King's Cross, Tufnell Park, Fitzrovia and St John's Wood

"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."

One of London's most vibrant areas, Camden is a melting pot of alternative shops, bars, restaurants and markets selling weird and wonderful things!

What locals say about Camden Town

  1. I love living here because of the number of young people who come to this place, the coexistence of a lot of trends and together with the million pubs and markets

  2. 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!!
