"In 1829, architect Thomas Wilson proposed a 94-storey pyramidal mausoleum to be built on Primrose Hill to house corpses, as London was running out of space to bury its dead."

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 Chalk Farm

Chalk Farm is an area of north London. It lies directly to the north of Camden Town and its underground station is the closest tube station to the nearby, upmarket neighbourhood of Primrose Hill. Its name, deceptively rural, derives from the Anglo Saxon Old English language for 'cold cottages'. These days it absorbs the spread from Camden Town and has many lively pubs, live music venues, and restaurants. Within London it is best known as the site of The Roundhouse, a former circular railway engine shed which was subsequently converted for arts and performance use.
