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

"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."

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

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.
