“Recommend to go a bit later...not many shops open in early morning”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Camden market is a popular attraction if you go to visit London. It's very near to the tube station, once you exit the station, just kept walking ahead. Then, you will go to Camden market.
I went there in early morning..but not many shops open.

In the middle of the market, the place is more nice. There are some horse sculptures..and some cafes with middle east setting...with the thing i like a lot...shisha...

Also, there are variety of food stalls over there which you could try different cuisines...

I think half day visit is enough...still ok to have a visit.

“Not what it used to be”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

I used to live in Camden back in the 1970s, when London was still a pretty cool place after the swinging 60s and Camden Market was full of hippies and leather shops. Now, it caters to an international visitor, with a young crowd looking for shoes of all kinds and biker gear. Can still be fun, if you're under 30 but probably not to be recommended for those over 40. The Jazz Club is definitely going to, near the Underground, and there are some cool restaurants leading up to Regents Park.

“Tick this one off but don't waste your time”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Camden Market is a must see if you are in London.. BUT Don't expect punks walking up and down the road.. The stalls are ok.. but there is way too much rubbish and nothing original!

“Colourful & excellent experience for stundents from the German countyside”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

I haven't been here before myself and am very greatful my colleague put this part on our schedule. I especially the 2nd hand book market in the basement of the market and the sculptures. Students were frantic about the dr dre head phone and did their best to get a good bargain. Would go there again, also with partner / friends.
