"Eccentric naturalist Francis Trevelyan Buckland, adopted a strange diet where he would eat any animal, all in the name of science. One of his splendid parties once boasted mice in batter, boiled elephant trunk and porpoise heads! He died at 54 after swimming in the Thames trying to feel what it would be like to be a fish!"

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

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.
