Fantastic, loved every minute in Camden Town. So very different to all the other shops on the high Street. We bought some souvenirs and a painting. We spent 4 Hours shopping and to be honest it felt like minutes, you know what I'm talking about. The market stalls, bizarres, the choice of food down by Camden Lock, amazing, something for everyone.

Haven't been here in years. Enjoyed my few hours browsing and buying. Great place for jewellery, especially earrings. Wanted to eat at the vegan restaurant but it was too cold and the place is open air. Didn't like the fact that I had to hand over my email address if I wanted a receipt. I guess that's the way the world is heading.

If you like lots of energy, diversity, and niche markets then Camden Markets is a great place to go. Unlike other must-see places in London, Camden Markets has a more "real" feel to it. There are always interesting people to meet and interesting things to look at or buy. My only piece of advice would be to be weary of jacked up prices. Overall, a great time with cool shops and delicious food!

Such vibrant place. So much to see. Great stalls with all sorts of things on offer. The selection and variety of different types of goods is great. Easy to get to on the tube and by bus from central London. There is also the canal where you can pick up a boat for trip. Really exciting place.

Quite simply one of my favorite places on earth! Whenever I travel to the UK I always hit Camden Markets on the weekend. It’s an amazing eclectic assortment of people and stalls and shops and the vibe there regardless of the weather is great. It’s a MUST SEE tourist attraction and so easy to get to via the Tube.
