Living in Melbourne, my idea of a market is based on the Victoria markets. Camden is nothing like the Vic markets. The are so many parts to it, all different. You've got the main street (not even part of the lock market), beside the canal where there's amazing food. Then wander into the stables that seem to wind around for... More

Not a far tube ride from central London and worth the trip. A very unique market with hand crafted goods from artisans all over the world - great size and variety. It also has amazing international food options to snack along the way as you shop. Truly enjoyed my time exploring here.

Not been here for years. Did not remember it being this good. Great selection of boutique style clothe stores, great street food market. Will defiantly go back and spend some time in the market. Some really great places to visit for all types.

Jammed on a Saturday in July, but lots to see and do. Good to explain how locks work to the boys as well. People were all very friendly.

I visited here with my partner and friend and loved the atmosphere. During the summer months it's quite packed and can get quite stuffy but all the markets offer such a diverse range, and it's really easy to navigate your way around! Really enjoyed my visit

Whether you're there for the food, or for some new handmade home decorations, this is a really cool place. Personally, I was there for the food and I had a gastronomical trip around the world. Make sure you make the most of the free trials the stalls allow! (Don't be too cheeky though). You might also catch a glimpse of... More

Easy and reachable, Camden Market portraits the alternative London; the one you do not usually see in the in-flight magazine aboard the 747 to heathrow. Shops of everykind and taste, food from all over the world and multiple languages is why you constantly turn your head left and right. My impression, having spend there a whole afternoon, is that here... More
