Camden Town is mainly known for its lock, canal, market and alternative music venues. It's a popular spot for tourists, and plenty of Londoners have a special place in their heart for it.
It has not always been so. Back in 1976, Camden Town was just another abandoned area of north London which, after years of neglect, had been left to the drunks and winos. Camden isn’t just for tourists though, many Londoners head to Camden on the weekend to eat at the best food stalls at Camden Market, chill by the canal and have a few drinks in the many bars and pubs in Camden.
Camden is one of the best places in London for people watching. You'll see eccentric characters, all different types of fashion.
