Where do Camden locals go?

The Princess of Wales

Quirky interiors and a fabulous Sunday lunch in leafy Primrose Hill.

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.

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!

The Coffee Jar

The best coffee in Camden along with some great sandwiches and cakes.

Roundhouse

For music lovers there is the famous Roundhouse venue, which has amazing views from anywhere inside and great sound for a brilliant night out!

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!

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 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.

Camden Coffee Shop

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

The Hill

With a menu of freshly prepared lunch and dinner dishes, this place does a great sirloin steak and pepper sauce!

Camden Market

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

Hook

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

Chilango

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

Côte

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

  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.
