Camden Town, London

My wife and I had the chance to spend a few days in London recently. We saw the usual sites like Big Ben and the Tower of London like every visitor to London should.  One afternoon she surprised me by taking me to the Camden Market section of London.  I knew nothing about it and was thrilled to walk through the area.

The heart of Camden, or Camden Town is it is often called, are the markets.  The five main markets in the area are the Camden Lock Market featuring books, clothes and food from around the world, the Camden Lock Village with lots of clothing and other items, Camden Market (originally called Buck Street Market) which focused on fashion, the Inverness Street Market which has clothing, shoes, and souvenirs, and the Stables Market, a maze of permanent stores selling antiques, food, clothes, and decorations.

In addition to the markets themselves, there are a number of very interesting shops along the streets near the markets and the Camden Town tube stop which serves the area.
