Camden Market, London

4.4
With hundreds of stalls selling clothing, crafts, and food, Camden Market is one of Europe's largest markets. The nexus of one of London's most offbeat neighborhoods, the market joins together a series of smaller markets. Start in Camden Lock Market, the one that helped give rise to the others. Here you'll find music, films, books, crafts, and unusual gift items. Head to Camden Stables Market for vintage clothing and antiques. Most of the markets contain food stalls, but go to Inverness Street for fresh produce and continental-style restaurants. Sunday is the busiest day here, and the Camden tube stop restricts inbound service in the afternoon to help manage the crowds. You'll find fewer people--but also fewer open stalls--on weekdays.

  • It was recommended by friends who visited him in the 90's, what are two vintage clothing stores. Recommended international food. The remaining Chinese souvenirs, a penalty.

  • Everything that you seek, find it here. The variety of items is incredible. I believe that it is a single market in the world by the quirky in the variety and specialization of what it has to offer.

  • Fantastic place to visit, on a sunny or rainy day! Plenty of sights to see as well as a wide variety of stalls including craft, lighting, clothing, jewellery, gifts and a large food and drink area with every cuisine you can think of. The main food area is situated right on the lock which gives you a great view of boats moving around while you take in the rest of the atmosphere. Music is very much a part of Camden Lock too with almost all stalls playing music - during our latest visit there was a live DJ situated undercover. We always come away with something. Situated close to 2 major tube stations within a few minutes walk Camden Lock really is a great place to be.
  • Amazing place to explore. The Stable Markets are held within horse stables from the 1850s, so there’s plenty of history here. A wide variety of stalls, stores and curiosities will keep you entertained. There is also tonnes of food, some excellent vegan options as well. Try the Young Vegan pies or cookie dough for a treat. Be prepared to be patient in the crowds. The Camden Lock markets are one of London’s quintessential scenes, make sure you check it out.
  • Eclectic mix of trendy and vintage shops. Stables market has some unique clothes and food places. Camden lock is really fascinating to watch...must see if you have never seen one and one can take a canal boat to and from little Venice and London zoo. Amongst the smell of incense, traffic fumes and food, there is a definite smell of weed while walking around. Camden is a great place for exploring a variety of new experiences but not with young children, it's too crowded and nothing really for keeping babies and young children occupied....do go but not with kids.
  • Brilliant market - go to the right part Camden market sprawls from Camden station to just before Chalk Farm station along Camden High Street. However, only 2 parts of the market are really worth a visit, the 2 ORIGINAL sections. Walking up Camden High street passing some excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, ignore the markets until you cross over the canal and reach Camden Lock Market on your LEFT. This was the original art and craft market, and unlike the other markets selling mostly mass made or imported products, the inside section of this market is genuine handy crafts made by artisans in the UK. Lots of unique products and well worth a visit.Linking onto this is The Stables Market which used to be a junk market with a few artisans in the cellars and arches. It has now been refurbished, has excellent foods, and is fascinating to wander around
  • Ever since my first visit in the 90's it has been a positive influence in getting to know other artists, healers, open minded human beings. One of my Favourite markets and areas in London which never stop amazing me. It is one of the places to visit when visiting London for sure. Love going There for food, buying presents that are unique and different, buying crystals and healing tools. LOVE IT
