Camden Market Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating A shoppers and foodies paradise. Everything you could possibly think of can be found here. The most amazing street food from every corner of the world. The smells are amazing! In terms of shopping there are hundreds of shops all set around the historic yards near Camden Lock and the Regents Canal. Vintage clothes, jewellery, art and more than you could look at in 10 visits. It's a great experience. It's also possible to take a boat trip on the canal up to Little Venice which we did. I would advise going early as by the afternoon it was incredibly busy.

5 Star Rating Incredible place! Lively and colorful, full of people and tourists, many shops selling everything (clothes, food, jewelry, souvenirs, second-hand objects and much more). People are kind and the vibe is so chill! Advice: eat street food, get lost in every little shop and enjoy a couple of hours here!

4 Star Rating Camden Market, located in the heart of London, offers a vibrantly eclectic experience, rich with the scent of global cuisines, the buzz of people, and a visual feast of punk-inspired fashion and quirky stalls. My friend and I delved into this bustling marketplace, finding ourselves enthralled by the diversity and sheer energy that Camden exudes. The market is a paradise for those intrigued by alternative styles, featuring an array of shops selling wild hairstyles, unique tattoos, and punk clothing that mirror the area's historic connection to London's music scene. It's a place where creativity and self-expression are not just encouraged but celebrated. Among the culinary delights, Chin Chin Labs' ice cream stands out as a must-try, offering innovative flavors that are as surprising as they are delicious. This is complemented by the unique dining experience provided by the glass dome-shaped igloos near Camden Lock Bridge. These igloos, while offering an Instagram-worthy dining setting, can get busy, and during our visit, we noticed they could benefit from more frequent cleaning. However, this minor critique does not detract from the overall charm and excitement of dining in such a unique setting. Camden Market's vibe is heavily influenced by punk culture, a legacy that continues to shape its atmosphere. This is evident in the fashion choices of many young visitors, adding to the market's eclectic and inclusive nature. Despite the occasional oversight, such as the cleanliness of the igloo dining spaces, Camden Market remains a joyful, sensory overload. It's a place where food, fashion, and culture collide to create an unforgettable experience. Whether you're a local or a tourist, Camden Market demands a visit, promising an array of sights, sounds, and tastes that embody the vibrant spirit of London.

4 Star Rating Lots of different food and shop options. It was definitely very crowded on the weekend around lunch time - we had visited during the week at the same time and it was much easier to get around and see everything. The food is more reasonable them some of the costs of the different stores and shops. Great photo opportunities throughout. Definitely recommend swinging by the soho 'ice cream' spot here too. Awesome take on ice cream!

5 Star Rating One of the most affordable markets in London. Best place for souvenirs and many more gifts. It has a variety of shops for all kinds of audiences. Along with this it has mouth watering food joints and some well known food corners to satisfy your taste buds. On weekends, it's a jam packed Market with long queues outside shops and restaurants. This is a must visit place for shopping and eating whenever you are in London.
