  • In the neighborhood of Camden there is a water channel passable by boats having a curious lock step and lift to two levels of water next to the entrance of your market and Mews. We enjoyed the manual operation of passage of some vessels in which one had to lower the level and another climbed through Gates which are opened by people turning cranks. A traditional but effective transportation system. Along the canal and the floodgates there are bars as well as a ride and a small bridge to enjoy the weeping willows that drop their branches into the water stream. It is a relaxed among the large number of experiences that exist in Camden Town.

  • Typical rather than London, but 90% is powered by Asia low-coast, fortunately, there is the ambiance and the Food all the world, nothing for it, it's worth the visit... Even Cyber Dog loses its charm. Camden is no longer. R.I.P

  • First time visit here, walked along the canal bank from the zoo... Colourful, full of energy, from the street food market, to the canalside pubs, and sitting watching the boats go thru the locks.. Vis...  more »

  • The Camden Lock area is a good place to start a walk or cycle along the canal, hang out with friends eating street food from the nearby market. Although it is usually crowded, especially on weekends, but less so than the market area. Give it a few minutes if you are heading to the market or the shopping street. It is a working canal lock, so you can see boats passing and their crew operating the gates.
  • Love this place you can be rite in the heart of the hustle and bustle one minuet and the next walking along the canal in the pease and quiet.
  • These lovely ladies really know what they're doing with hair and dreadlocks. The atmosphere in the salon is friendly and relaxed and the best thing is that they understand every kind of hair and they're not afraid to give you some advice an tell you if the look you want isn't going to work. I'd much rather have an honest hairdresser and day. Plus they remembered me after months of not going there. Reasonable prices for the quality service and location.
  • There is a good and bad side about Camden Town and it street food market. 1/ you feel like you are somewhere in Africa's country market thank to it varieties of goodies and shop street market. 2/ it is somehow dirty and yet people seems more attracted by it. 3/ It is away to get out from our routine zone and be surrounded of range of people from around the world for not cost (Flight and hotel) Worth a visit as part of an experience to taste the street food if you don't have any types of allergen - and you okay to eat those food mixture of bacteria from human being breathing and natural pollution.
  • Huge variety of street food from the market as well as outdoor bars fronting the water. Walk along the canal to little Venice if you're feeling more adventurous or relax, sipping a beer or glass of wine, while watching the canal boats navigate the lock and enjoy the busy buzz of the place

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
