London

Camden Market Roaming

Hi guys,

I hope everyone is having a good start to the week.

This Monday I’m bringing you something that is a rather a must if you have friends visiting from any other countries. One of my longest and first friends that I ever met after moving to England came to visit and we agreed to meet in Camden and roam the market for the day.

I’m sure all the other people living in London for quite a few years agree that visiting touristy places such as Camden (despite being uber cool) loses its appeal after a while. Dealing with the crowds on Sunday afternoon especially if one suffers from a hangover can be rather daunting. However, if you have a lovely friend visiting then I recommend you get yourself to Camden and spend a day shopping and eating on one of the markets.

I’m sure you all know that Camden has quite a wide selection of quirky and weird things available to buy and if you are looking to buy something slightly different, than this is definitely the place to come. Lots of my blog readers are from the States so if you guys ever visit London, you most certainly must visit Camden.

To tell you little bit more about this area; Camden is positioned in North London and it belongs to Zone 1 which makes it part of Central London so it is a must see sight. It is well known for its Market and apparently this has been the case since the 70’s. There isn’t just one market though as you are able to buy all sorts of fashion, food, antiques, books, lifestyle or any other peculiar bits that are hard to find anywhere else. Popular markets are Stables Market, Camden Lock Village, Buck Street Market and an indoor Electric Ballroom market (Electric Ballroom is a rather famous club, click HERE too see more info).

I have taken few pictures to show you a random variety of available goods in Camden.

After walking all day, we went to this little cute coffee shop just outside the Stables Market called Miss Poppy Cakes which serves a delicious selection of cakes and cupcakes and really good coffee.

We rested here for a little while before heading back our separate ways. It was sure lovely to see my gorgeous friend Elena and I will sure be visiting her soon In Madrid.

Have a good week everyone.
