Camden Lock and Stables Markets Jan 29, 2017
A visit to Camden Town is a must if you want to see an alternative side of London and maybe buy an unusual bargain. I took the tube to Camden Town and walked up Camden High Street past its unique and crazy shop frontages to the market at Camden Lock. Camden Lock Market is a great place to indulge in some street food and browse the arts, crafts and books. They have loads of food stalls here with diverse cuisines from all over the world. I bought a dish from the stall that sold Peruvian dishes (a spicy beef dish with rice and potatoes) and it was very filling, tasty and decent value at £6. I then made my way to the historic Stables Market which had many stalls set out like a bit like a souk, appearing to specialise in vintage clothing, fast food, crafts and assorted tourist tat. Stables Market is also home to a great shop called Cyberdog which is a shopping experience in itself with its neon lights, loud techno music, podium dancers and futuristic facade. I will definitely be making a return visit to Camden Markets and will stay longer next time. The couple of hours I spent there this time was nowhere near enough.

Directions: Camden Town and Chalk Farm Underground stations are the nearest ones. Both are on the Northern Line.

Thanks Sarah. I enjoyed visiting Camden and seeing a different side of London. Love the area around Brick Lane/Whitechapel too for the same reason.

Camden market Mar 21, 2012
The market here is great. You can find almost anything you need here.. Most of all it vibrant and energetic place. There are a lot of music and hangout places if you get tired of shopping.. even if you are not shopping its a fine place to kill time, eat from various food shops, sit around the canal etc..

There are various cuisines available, food options are plenty, so you could be spoiled for choice.

There is more info on site :

I HEART CAMDEN Aug 08, 2011
Camden is a completely different world on it's own.

It's cobbled streets are lined with quirky independent stores, food stalls and cafe's.

The Market and Locks are so pretty and there are plenty of photo opportunities here, bantering for bargains with the shop owners and testing the food stalls delicacies before buying.

Shops include: Tattoo's, Piercing, Vintage, Second Hand Books, Clothing, Accessories, Leather, Shoes... you name it they have it.

Food stalls include: Oyster bars, Salted Beef stalls, Coffee bars, fresh fruit smoothies, Indian, Thai, Mexican, English, American, Chinese... the list goes one, there is certainly something in Camden for everyone.

I will update with pictures shortly.

Located just two stops away from Euston on the Northern line so very easy to get to, no excuses not to visit :)

Fab! Apr 25, 2011
I love Camden Market! Its a little way out of the center of london, so is easily missed, but its so fun! I loved the old horse hospital with all the market stalls and wacky shops inside. Its such a great place to just sit and people watch. Also its beautiful to sit by the river and eat an ice-cream, or try something new from the international food stalls. However, I wouldnt really recomend the chineas food. It smells soooo yummy as you walk past, but its all pretty dull, tasteles and a bit rubbery.

The market that might just have everything! Feb 23, 2011
I love Camden Market, it's great to wonder around, have a bight to eat and do some shopping.

Make sure you have a good wonder around and don't buy the first thing that you see! Also you can try and get a little off the price by saying you saw it cheaper somewhere else. Don't be afraid to!

There are many different clothing styles there, mostly alternative, punk, rock, gothic styles. But also nice lovely floral dresses.

Loads of food stalls, any kind of cuisine. It's nice to take a seat by the river with your food and enjoy the amazing view. There are also wonderful donuts to be held at the front of the market (near Camden tube station) LOVE them.

Located on the Northern Line, open all day every day. Nice stop for lunch.

Great shopping expereince Jun 04, 2011
I love Camden's exciting collection of markets that take you to cool London. lots of great cheap buys and vintage wears from independent sellers. Best to go on a weekday for actually shopping, as on the weekend it is extremely busy, but there is a great atmosphere.

Camden Jul 09, 2011
When visiting London, Camden is a place that should be on your to-do list.

There are a number of markets in Camden Town, all coming off the main stretch of road, Camden High Street. Camden High Street then leads on to Chalk Farm Road where the Stables Market is.

Camden markets, london Jun 25, 2009
Camden town is located on the 'northern line' tube, servicing london.

These markets are open 24/7, 7 days a week. If your into goth, emo, hippy, tribal, tattoo's, peicings, clothes, jewellery, fresh produce and more then this market is for you.

Its diverse layout and over sized novelity items hanging from the sides of the buildings, not only catches your eye but entertains you at the same time.

Located on the right when exiting camden tube station your more then likely to spend your entire day here...

Shopping until you can no longer carry anymore, to sampling every kind of food imaginable to having a pint in one of the many pubs dotted around the loch or in camden itself. N0-7 is a great pub that serves up great food..staff are friendly and the patio underneath red umbrella's shades you from the sun in summer. From the other side of the loch the 'ice bar' is fairly cheap and cheerful with free wi-fi. get comfty in there leather arm chairs and watch the 'long boats' travel the canals.

Camden markets range in price, depending on what produce takes your fancy. wether its the famous graffiti artist 'banksy' to old coke signs, spray painted suits to the biggest doughnuts you've ever seen. camden caters for everyone.

Be sure to note, the best time to go is during the week as on the weekends its chaotic to say the least and a word or warning to leave camden by tube, the station doesnt' starting operating until 4.30 so be sure to use bus's or cabs (though expensive)...

whatever you do, don't miss THIS OPPORTUNITY....and finally enjoy yourself.. :)

A Distinctive Place to Visit Aug 21, 2008
Camden Town is an ecclectic mix of shops, night clubs and restaurants. There is a wide range on offer- the market stocks clothes, jewellery, art, photography and crafts. There are many street stalls selling food, and there's always something going on at night. The Underworld club is underneath the World's End pub, and hosts a large range of bands. The Camden Roundhouse is also used by major bands, and there are many pubs along the high street. The Electric Ballroom is another famous club in Camden. This is really the place to relax and meet some interesting people! :O

An awesome place, a must see for London! Even if you don`t want to shop it`s just great to go there for the atmosphere and to see all the different types of characters that are there. There are stands for everything!! Clothes, jewellery, food, blankets, etc etc. There is also a whole bunch of foreign food stands where you can try stuff and then buy what you want whether its Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Mexican, French, Italian, Moroccan or something else.

If you fancy a place full of life and yet offers moments to sit back and just chill then Camden Market if the place to visit. There are many places to eat, drink and explore. What's more it has I think London's coolest open-air market with stalls a plenty.
