This is definitely the most random, eclectic, and fantastic grouping of shops I've been to. If you're a tourist and looking for some unique souvenirs I'd recommend going here instead of getting sucked into the glitz and glam of Baker Street or Piccadilly. I picked up some great artwork and costume jewelry here that I'm still enjoying very much so.... More

A very large market and I think I will need a second visit to appreciate the whole are and take in the ambiance. We visited on a Monday and was pleasantly surprised that it was not crowded and we...

Overall: 4 Other comments: fairly large area, hundreds of shops and booths, handicraft, t-shirts, street food of basically any thinkable nationality (no nordic), covers for mobile phones and lots and lots more. Absolutely on the crowded side. Enjoy. Location: 4 Offering: 4 Originality: 4 Presentation: 4 Atmosphere: 4 Service: 4 Cleanliness: 3 Price: 4 Price/value: 4

Camden is very quirky lots of great food and friendly people will definitely go back. The food is different and the stallers will let you sample before you buy.

First time visiting, but definitely won't be the last. Very quirky, laid back and loads of interesting people, places, shops, stalls and the food market at Camden Lock is the best ever!

Not a true representation of London. Avoid as there are more markets with considerablely more charm within London to visit.

I used to go to Camden regularly and it was my top shopping destination of choice purely because of its individuality. The high street used to have so many different shops selling all different things and it was more rough and ready back then. Now, it has been redeveloped and I like the fact that they have put more emphasis... More

Come along to Camden market and browse the market stalls and you might find the odd gem. We found great trinkets, clothes, jewellery and toys all for much cheaper than we would have found them elsewhere. Try street food, made in minutes and ready to munch as you travel round. Have a go at bartering and see if you can... More

We spent a little while at the market in Camden Lock - not the high street - and found it to be interesting with plenty of stuff you might not find elsewhere. Though some shops, especially the high street have the predictable knock-offs. There was a good food area too though we were a bit early for lunch so didn't... More
