We got the 168 bus from Woburn place to Camden high street and the market was right there. Took about 10 minutes, this is a one way street so when returnng you need to get the bus back from the road behind which was easy to find. There are lots of shops on both sides of the road and some... More

This part of London is a great outdoor market. Visitors can find a variety of shops, cafes and restaurants as well. I visited this market on Sunday that were full of people strolling around, eating and shopping. It is similar to Amsterdam's streets because of the canal and the multicultural atmosphere.

Been coming here for over 30 years,so have seen many changes. The biggest change since the stables revamp is the sheer number of stalls,the area now is a rabbit warren where its difficult to find anything previously noted,and the volume of smaller stalls squeezing out the larger ones. Its packed with tourists (as always) but its just too large to... More

Well it's very vibrant,hipee and cool. However it's very very very touristie. Can find good stuff from everyone and everything. Have a good bite to eat,shop for cool clothing and watch the boats go up and down the canal. For those trying to buy weed,this location is an option.

A very interesting place and full of little nooks and crannies that you could spend a whole day wasted just wondering round! You'd be entertained without having to spend money, if you can resist all of the delicious food and drink on offer!

Great day out whether buying, dining or people watching. Lots of artisan works on sale and the chap dancing on the bridge is fantastic. Thoroughly recommended.

Having been establish for a few decades, Camden Market still has the buzzy vibe although finding a bargain is a little harder nowadays with the high tourist turnover, but the deeper in you go, the more you will find a nice little bargain!
