Map of London Camden Town tube station

Camden Town lies about a mile north of Euston Station. It's an odd sort of place - at weekends almost totally dominated by Camden Market and Camden Lock market's. A few years ago, these were excellent value for money. These day's they're less so (such is the price of success), but it may still be possible to find some bargains. Personally I think one of the best reasons to go there is to watch the people - Camden can outwierd New York any day of the week, but at weekends it's no contest! The whole street is filled with young people on fine days, causing plenty of headaches for those foolish enough to want to drive through here. Camden Lock is the prettiest part of the market, being centered around the canal basin.

Camden is also home to a great many excellent restaurants which cater mostly to local people - Camden isn't much to look at, so apart from the market at weekends, it doesn't tend to attract tourists.

Camden also boast what must be one of the oddest supermarket buildings anywhere in it's Sainsburys. I'm told its design won prizes, but although it makes a great supermarket, it's not the prettiest building from the outside.
