Camden Town & Chalk Farm
Although it still echoes a distinct Doc Marten clad, mohawked punk feeling, Camden Town has successfully broadened its appeal to become one of the most visited destinations in London. While its eclectic music scene and markets continue to thrive, it now also offers a rich cultural mix of art shows, theatres and galleries and provides a one stop destination for anyone seeking exciting and unique purchases and a great day out.
Home to the world famous Camden Market, which hosts specialist music shops and fashion forward boutiques, Camden Town is the perfect place to pick up a gorgeous piece of vintage clothing, a unique gift or a rare b-side from your favourite band. Take a tour of world cuisines in the market, grab a fry up from a café on the high street or experience flavours you have never encountered before.
A night out in Camden Town is a night like no other. You may start with a few quiet drinks in one of the many bars, but odds are that before you know it you’ll be on your feet dancing to some of the best music London has to offer at the likes of KOKO and Jazz Cafe. And don’t worry too much about getting home - night buses and the night tube serve the area well.
Chalk Farm is a little quieter, but still there is a lot to do and see. Go visit the Roundhouse for one of the best gig-experiences of your life; it is one of the best art and performance venues in Europe and has an impressive line-up.
