Camden Market Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating The overall experience was great. The Market is vibrant, diverse and offers an eclectic mix of sights and smells. The food court caters for most dietary options, offering a wide selection of options. The stalls have a wide range of goods on sale and the majority of vendors are nice and charming (obviously). There are some minor negatives worth mentioning though. If you're driving to the area do your research about parking - it can be an issue. There are various options available, it's just a question of finding and deciding which one works for you. Public toilets are a £1 - they are very clean but attract a cost all the same. The food is a little pricey, as are the goods on sale. I suppose it's not your typical market but just be mindful that goods on sale do attract a premium price. If you're going with small kids, keep an eye on them - the place does get very crowded. Besides that, I'd recommend the market as a destination for exploring the more eclectic elements of London.

5 Star Rating Such a cool place - there's a broad variety of shops selling everything one could look for, great food spots and people performing at the roadside. Not to mention the absolutely fantastic street art all around Camden Market. It's literally everywhere and so beautiful to look at. One could walk around there for hours. I loved it.

3 Star Rating I visited Camden Market for the first time today as I've heard so many positive things about it, but I found it to be a little overwhelming. I did fall in love with some handmade jewellery and brought few rings. I really adored this woman's stall; everything is silver and quite reasonably priced. If you're searching for a good location to sit and dine, you might want to explore elsewhere because Camden Market has a lot of halal places to eat, but there aren't many of them with seating.

5 Star Rating I say get there early , we did, and we were lucky not to have to stand in long lines for food. We started at the food caravans and at the Argentinian caravan. Oh, holy hell 😳 I have not had steak that good in the uk yet. 😋 We had the fries topped with sliced steak and cheese 🧀. This combo is incredible, such simple ingredients, but they were incredibly, mouth watering. My husband & I shared one ( next time I will be getting my own ). It gets really busy. Get there early 🙌

5 Star Rating My best advice is to look at a map to get a rough idea of the site and then enjoy walking leisurely around, just taking in the sights. Impressive range of food stalls, though unfortunately had already eaten elsewhere so need an empty stomach next visit. Great range of more unusual shops and definitely the place to come if you want a t-shirt. Great vibe.
