“Funky Camden Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

If you're looking for a different kind of experience- take the tubes or the bus here. All sorts of shops and street vendors- great for the younger crowd. The market was fantastic and had all sorts of food vendors. I had the best felafel I every had made fresh in front of me for 5 lbs. Worth food shopping here if you have a frig at your hotel. Had wonderful Ethiopian Coffee too!

“Fun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

It's soso varied and perfect for a different day out. Be warned: it is extremely crowded and you will constantly be pressured into buying many overpriced items. Try to get the prices down as much as possible and you'll find some great bargains. The place is really colourful and inviting but can be a very dodgy area at night time. Somebody did go into my grandma's bag as we were walking by so be careful!
