Camden Lock Markets : London

Lots to see and do in London. It’s an exciting world city, with all sorts of areas with a different vibe, and part of the charm is being able to take a quick tube ride and get into a completely different atmosphere. One of my favorite areas in my visits to London many years back was Camden Lock, the hippy market area, and so although my last visit was short I went back to spend a few hours touring the area. Although it was a bit different than I remembered and more quiet, it did not disappoint. The extensive array of markets with a wise variety of shops selling just about anything for relatively cheap is the perfect for people watching. You’ll see London’s diversity at its best, with all sorts of funky combinations and curious cultural observations. You don’t have to shop, although I bet you’ll find plenty of things you’ll adore, with great options for souvenirs to bring back home. It’s definitely a place worth exploring in depth and lingering in for long.

 

Here’s a bit from my quick walk through memory lane into the world of Camden Lock markets…

Although it’s not typically considered a London must, I’d make this part of any itinerary for visiting London. A great area, a wonderful way to spend half or even a full day. Try and catch one of the big crowded weekend markets.
