"South Kentish tube station was closed for a power cut in 1924, but when power was restored, so few passengers used the station, that it was decided to not bother re-opening it."

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