Get completely and utterly lost in the market voice of experience

Eat your way around the market. Amazing array of food.

Explore every nook and cranny of Camden Market.
Try a variety of tea at Yumchaa Camden Lock.
You can pick up a water bus at Camden Lock and take it along Regent’s Canal to Little Venice. It goes across Regent’s Park and right through the middle of London Zoo.
Just down the road from Camden is Primrose Hill, one of the best free viewing points in London, and a nice place to relax.
The Blues Kitchen, Band of Burgers and Inamo are my favourite places to eat dinner.
Yorkshire Burrito, Cafe Chula and The Mac Factory for lunch.
Chin Chin Labs for something sweet.

Thank you 😊
Love the idea of the water bus through the zoo

I like the building of Camden Market but it's all a bit too pretentious for me

Guided tour of Highgate cemetery. It's fascinating

The market is great (well was pre covid). London zoo is close

Primrose Hill
Walk along Regents Canal to King's Cross
Eat at Purezza

Hans and Gretel shop worth a nosey.
Some lovely pubs in Camden (I should know-I spent half my life in them!) but not sure how many are open or what the atmosphere is like now.
If you like Jazz-the Jazz Cafe would be a nice place to visit.
Primrose Hill is beautiful with stunning views.
One thing I can't bear about Camden is the market-I have always found it very dirty, crowded and depressing (sorry). I know there are loads of people who love it.
Have a great weekend Smile

Eat all of the food. All of it.

Take a selfie with the statue of Amy Winehouse. Yes, really...

RobinlovesCormoran · 12/09/2020 12:48

Get a 29 bus out of Camden...(sorry, not a fan)

Smallinthesmoke · 12/09/2020 13:00

Try not to get pickpocketed Sad
Churros are good. Mmmmmmmmm.

Thanks for all the replies
So I've been and now I'm home

Several pounds heavier due to eating 😊
We pottered round the market, saw the Amy statue ❤️ went to the electric ballroom for drinks, sat by the canal for more drinks, went to the tea shop for tea, had the biggest doughnut I have ever seen in my life,

Really enjoyed it there and can't wait to visit again
