Camden Town


Famed for its own market and one of London’s most vibrant shopping and entertainment neighbourhoods, Camden Town is the place to be. You’ll find this place within London, just south of Hampstead and Belsize Park. Fancy a drink? The Hawley Arms pub is loved by the locals and is a good way to get to know them. When you’re not in the market, why not explore Primrose Hill and the Regent’s Park, where you’ll find Regent’s Canal and ZSL London Zoo.

Restaurants & Pubs

Gordon Ramsay’s York and Albany is a modern British restaurant situated in Clerkenwell. But if you would rather have a drink in the local pub, give the Edinboro Castle, the Hawley Arms, or the Lock Tavern Camden a try.

Whether you’re more of a veggie or a meat-eater, Mildreds Camden (a vegetarian restaurant) and Haché Burgers Camden (a hamburger restaurant) have got you covered.

In the mood for a restaurant serving different tasty cuisines? Why not try Bar Gansa (Spanish), Bento Ramen (Japanese), Feng Shang Princess (Chinese), Mai Sushi (Japanese), Mestizo Mexican Restaurant (Mexican), Namaaste Kitchen (Indian), or Taste of India (Indian).

Or what about Clerkenwell’s collection pubs and gastropubs. Find out what Queen’s Head & Artichoke, the Lansdowne Pub & Dining Room, the Prince Albert, or the Princess of Wales is about.
