A must visit. My husband and I had a busy day visiting landmarks and this is how we ended our day. Oh how I wish we could've spent the whole day. There is so much to see and taste. A true shoppers paradise.

There is so much to see and do in Camden Lock - I wouldn't know where to begin. From the very first time I visited in 2012 I cannot stop coming back and bringing my friends, family and boyfriend with me! There is a variety of every street food you can think of in the markets at really cheap prices... More

A love it or hate it sort of place. We walked along the canal from Little Venice, which was very nice. Camden Lock is a bit busy and bustling for my taste, but I enjoyed a stroll around the markets. The varied food stalls look good but some of the clothes and gift stalls sell tat. We struggled to find... More

Wow! Camden market is certainly a feast for the eyes. There is culture, and style and the most incredible atmosphere. You can get lost in the maze of interesting shops and meet some lovely people. Unfortunately, my visit was brief as I was only walking through to reach my destination. I would love to spend all day exploring! Colour, music,... More

There were more shops than market stalls at Camden road and what was there was very repetitive, so see one stall and you seen them all. Shops were not too bad but tourist goods were the theme. It was a very busy place but then there were plenty of cafe's restaurants etc. I don't think it was worth the tube... More

Wow, is the only way to describe the colllection of markets here. Food to be sampled from every corner of the world. The markets are situated as the name suggests alondside the waterwaylocks at Camden. Other treasures include handmade jewellery, leather goods and more. Spend at least 3 or 4 hours exploring, a melting pot of nationalities.

For those of you wishing to experience Camden Market at its best i would suggest Sat/Sun early doors (From 10am onwards) or a week day at any time. Plenty of bargains to be had from Vintage clothes to antique furniture, whatever your fancy be sure not to take the first price offered. When haggling mention there is a stall in... More

At the end of our canal ride we arrived at Camden Market and immediately dove into the food stalls, truly impressed, just about every type of food was being prepared, could not get enough however there is only so much you can eat. Then it on to the shopping, something for everyone. Crowded but lots of fun, can not wait... More

Opposite to the elegant side of London, Camden is wild and closer to ordinary life. I wasn't quite impressed by the shops and the market. Products seem cheap and of poor quality. I did love strolling along the river. If you have time, go there for some different experience. If not, you wouldn't miss much.
