Iconic and buzzing London precinct

When Regent’s Canal was built through the area in 1816, Camden grew around this connected transport hub as workers migrated here. The now famous Camden Market began in 1973, and before long Camden Town became a byword for good nightlife and an alternative music and art scene.

Lunch or dinner

Camden’s food markets are among the best in London, with an ever-changing array of street food traders and restaurants. Eat your way around the world, from the best falafels in London at Magic Falafel, to the home of the famous halloumi fries at Oli Baba’s or Taiwanese buns at Bian Dang. For team meals out you’ll be spoilt for choice at  the likes of Belgo, Pizza Pilgrims or Gordon Ramsey’s York & Albany .
