Loved everything about it, every corner we turned uncovered another hidden gem. Great Stalls, amazing choice of food outlets and some of the friendliest people we have ever met.

I went here for my 18th and fell in love the stalls, people, food and atmosphere is amazing I loved the food square in the middle and the stalls are so alternative and if I could spend a day in oxford street or Camden I would choose Camden any day. The only thing that was annoying is the tube station... More

Just back from visiting our daughter in London and once again visited Camden. Its one of our families favourite places in the world. It just has a great buzz about it, yes its crowed (a little less at this time of the year!) but it just has a nice vibe. Great stall food and good prices with a huge variety... More

When I moved to London 16 years ago, my first rented flat was just opposite Stables Market. It was a fantastic place to live and I was sad to move out when the contract expired. Unfortunately the atmosphere of the time is gone now. It is now far too touristy and far too much run like businesses - just for... More

If you're into that culture you'd really enjoy Camden Markets. Only criticism is that a lot of it is getting the same on the outside (sell same things, stupid prices). Your real deals are in the markets itself both stables and lock. From skater shoes to tattoos its all there and affordable by London Standards. I recommend the Chinese place... More

Camden Lock would not impress everyone as this place is more related to teens as it boasts punk culture. The place is clustered with food outlets and body piercing shops. The souvenir shops are more or less typical having same type of magnet pieces and other such similar stuffs. There is small canal that offer excellent photographic opportunities. The smell... More

Was excited to go here as I had never been, it was very interesting and doesn't feel like you're in England at all. It is full of different shops that you wouldn't find elsewhere which is difficult to find nowdays. A personal favourite was the rave shop with dancers and everything glow in the dark! Amazing :)

Fun outdoor food vendors and endless vendors. Something for everyone with both tourist souvenirs and arts and craft type items. Good for family activity or couples, singles.

Situated right beside the locks on the Grand Union Canal this is a lively vibrant place with a vast diverse range of stalls and shops to keep anyone browsing or buying for hours. Haven't seen leather footballs on sale before personally. Plenty of nice looking places to eat as well. I sampled the bullandrancher stall right by the locks and... More
