Guide to Camden Town
Ultra-trendy Camden Town is one of London’s most iconic and in-demand places to live. With its myriad bars and restaurants, hugely popular street markets and famous music venues, there’s always something going on in this vibrant district.
Originally an industrial hotbed, thanks in part to its key position on the London canal network, Camden is now one of the capital’s most celebrated culture and entertainment hubs. It is home to the legendary Roundhouse and Electric Ballroom concert halls, as well as famous bars and pubs such as The Hawley Arms and The Good Mixer – both favoured hangouts of musicians, models and bohemians.
Arguably Camden’s best-known feature is its market. Started in 1974 with just 16 stalls selling arts and crafts, it is now the largest market in London, with more than 1,000 places to eat, drink, shop and listen to live music.

With its abundant amenities and entertainment opportunities, Camden Town is one of the most in-demand places to buy houses and apartments in London. It’s no surprise that a host of famous names have lived here over the years, from Victorian novelist Charles Dickens to poet Dylan Thomas and singer Amy Winehouse.
