A trip to London with overseas visitors is never complete without a visit to Camden Market. We dropped in right at the start of the year, on the 2nd January, to be precise. While I would rather visit the market in the spring and summer days (as we did in May 2018), the winter cold didn’t seem deter the crowds.
If you are visiting London, Camden Market is easily reached by bus or tube.A trip we have talked about but never actually done is the trip from Little Venice to Camden Lock on the Regents Canal, on the London Waterbus. That could definitely be interesting, especially in summer. Think about this one if you are planning a visit to London.
Put simply it’s a huge market located next to Camden lock. And it is big. I really can’t think of much you can’t get there. Now I hate shopping (like most guys I know), but I can happily spend a day exploring the labyrinthine passages of the market. And I rarely leave without a bargain. There’s a great selection of street food, from all over the world when you are hungry, so it is worth making your visit a day trip. On this occasion we arrived around mid-day and left well after 5:00. There was still time to see the Christmas lights and Winter Wonderland (it has to be done!!) in London.
The picture above is a street view, pretty much as you arrive in Camden Town. The market is located next to Camden Lock – hard to miss (below).

I visited Camden for the first time in a long time recently and it’s such an awesome place!!
I’ve never been but I would love this!
One of the many sides to London – well worth the visit.
All the times I have been to London and I still haven’t been to Camden. Next time i’m in London that is my plan!
You must go. We are waiting for some warmer weather, and then we want to do the Little Venice to Camden water bus.
I love Camden. It is one of my favourite parts of London!
I agree. Especially when you have visitors new to London!
