Where do Camden locals go?

Chilango

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

The Jazz Café

The Jazz Café is the place to go to watch big musical stars be born! Eat and listen to fantastic artists all in one place.

The York & Albany

Superb cocktails and excellent food right by Regent's Park.

Ferreira Delicatessen

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

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.

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.

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!

Kentish Town Sports Centre

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

Edinboro Castle

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

Hook

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

The Underworld

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

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

Coffee beans from a lovely old man who roasts the beans himself and has done for decades. He will also grind them for you...

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

"The first modern zoo in the world was established in Regent's Park in 1828. It served as an educational space, as opposed to the ostentatious menageries that existed before."

  1. About Camden

    Camden Town is an inner city district in northwest London, England and the central neighbourhood of the London Borough of Camden. It is located 2.4 miles (3.9 km) north-northwest of Charing Cross. It was laid out as a residential district from 1791 and was anciently part of the manor of Kentish Town and the parish of St Pancras, Middlesex. The town became an important location during the early development of the railways and is also located on the London canal network. Its industrial heritage has made way for retail, tourism and entertainment, including a number of internationally renowned markets and music venues that are strongly associated with alternative culture. Camden Lock market, started in a former timber-yard in 1973, is now surrounded by five more markets: Buck Street market, Stables market, Camden Lock village, and an indoor market in the Electric Ballroom. The markets are a major tourist attraction at weekends, selling goods of all types including fashion, lifestyle, books, food, junk/antiques and more bizarre items; they and the surrounding shops are popular with young people, in particular those searching for "alternative" clothing.
