Well worth the visit to Camden. I am travelling from Australia, this was close to the top of my list of must-do's. It did not disappoint. My tour was conducted by a wonderful, knowledgeable guide (I'm sorry his name eludes me).

Give about an hour~ depends on how many questions you have! Leo gave me a very leisurely tour of a little over an hour. You could find that distance on google maps. Have fun!
