Located just north of West London on Regents Canal, the Camden Market is an eclectic circus of shops, cinemas, pubs and a must see the next time you are in London. Comparable to the MarchÃ© aux Puces in Paris, this alternative market consists of the Camden Lock, Stables Market, and Canal Market.
You can literally find any genre of goods here â€” from vintage hippie broom skirts, neo-Goth pleather, and retro rockabilly tartan to antique European furniture, resale Bakelite jewelry, and funky abstract paintings â€” in other words, it is London’s alternative heaven.
Originally only open on weekends, Camden Market is now open seven days a week. Although you will miss the colossal crowds during the week, not all of the stalls will be open. (When I went on a Saturday afternoon, the market was busy but bearable!)
