London, United Kingdom: Camden Town

The moment you step out of the tube station, you’re going to feel the Camden rush kicking in. Whether you’re a rocker, a cool kid, a metal head, a hippy, or a vintage queen, you’ll find something to delight you in this fun part of North London. Camden Town is well known for its markets, as they are a major tourist attraction on a daily basis, selling goods of all types, including fashion, lifestyle, books, food, junk/antiques and more.

As you walk out of the station, you’ll find yourself walking in Camden High Street, a busy road, stacked with amazing shops, pubs, small indoor markets, and restaurants which overflow into the side streets.

As you see the ‘Camden Lock’ Bridge ahead, you know a food feast awaits you (just giving you the heads up!). On your way to the Camden Lock Market, you’re going to notice a Canal, called Regent’s Canal, on your right. Your visit won’t be complete until you spend some time along it.

Moving on, we then headed to Crispy Candy Co. (not suitable for the weak), where you choose your favorite candy bar then cover it with a donut mix to create a crispy candy donut. We had ‘Mars Meltdown’ and ‘Ultimate Oreo’. Next to Crispy Cando Co., you’ll find Cyberdog, a place you can’t miss!
