This can be said of the buildings too, as you’ll see some quirky art installations, fantastic colours and eclectic street art, Camden really is a feast for the senses. Your Local Host could take you for a coffee in one of the lesser known arty cafes, for a gaze in at a couple of the fun thrift shops, or even try on some of the hundreds of fierce shades at one of the street stalls before you venture to one of London’s most iconic markets. 

Within the market’s twisting tunnels there are hundreds of eclectic and personal stalls selling everything from handmade leather accessories to futuristic clubwear and vintage china trinkets. With so much choice on offer, your Local Host will know the best stalls to visit if you’re looking to treat yourself to a unique souvenir. The market is also home to some globally recognised street food, with all the new hipster trends from halloumi fries to handmade soda, you certainly won’t go hungry.

Your Local Host will also be able to introduce you to a few more of Camden’s sights too, from the iconic Camden Lock where canal boats still pass through, to the Amy Winehouse Memorial Statue.

As you’re starting to wind down for the day, why not stop off at one of the characteristic local pubs, renowned world over for their musical legacy. Stop for a drink in an iconic bar where Amy Winehouse played pool before she became famous, where Pete Doherty was kicked out (more than a few times) or where Jimi Hendrix played live back in the day, your Local Host will know the best pubs and bars to spend your time.

Camden Tour with Pierre

It was my parents first visit to London and Pierre did an awesome job. They book the 6 hours Candem tour, which was a full day of discovery led by Pierre. He made them feel very comfortable in a city they did not know anything about, gave them great advices on what to do on Christmas Day. They had a great experience. Could not have wish more for their first time in London ! Thank you !

Great experience

This tour was great, with a nice and obliging guide, who showed us Camdentown Market and Borough Market. We had a lot of fun with a variety of foods and souvenirs we bought.

Walking Tour of London

We spent a delightful 6 hours with Alison as we walked through the Borough of Camden and other fun neighborhoods as Alison regaled us with stories about local musicians and artists. Alison's passion is British pop culture, music and literature, so book an experience with Alison, especially if you are a fan of British pop culture!
