Camden Lock Market
I love walking round Camden at the weekend. I used to live here when I was a teenager so know it like the back of my hand and I always love having a stroll on a Saturday or Sunday. I especially love to stop by the side of the canal and watch the colourful barges go through the locks.

It’s really nice to just stand and watch the barges go through the lock

Camden’s changed a lot over the years as it used to be really run down and quite tatty, but since the fire that burnt down the old market area called The Stables, it’s been rebuilt to the really vibrant area that it is today. It’s a massive foodie place too, and a large part of the ground floor area of The Stables that runs by the river and the Lock, is now devoted to mainly food whereas a lot of the handmade crafts and jewellery is in a separate indoor area upstairs, along with some nice bars and pubs.

The High Street
The main part of the High Street runs from the Camden Tube Station at one end, right to the Lock and Regents Canal at the other end and there are hundreds of quirky shops that line the road. The High Street features major music venues at either end; Koko, the former Camden Palace, at the southern end, and The Roundhouse, on Chalk Farm Road at the northern end. There’s also another Market, the Camden Market, which sits right in the middle of the High Street and thousands of tourists visit here, especially on a Sunday. It gets so busy that Camden Tube Station is closed at certain times to stop it getting dangerously busy.
