    What to Expect
    Your tour begins at Camden Town underground station, where you’ll greet your guide and head towards Camden Market, an iconic institution brimming with eclectic merchandise. During the short stroll, your guide provides a cultural overview of Camden, famed for its live music scene and cutting-edge fashion.

    Browse stalls selling everything from Persian rugs and handmade fairy lights, to Japanese dolls and scented candles. Senses awash with color, escape the bustle of the market and venture to Primrose Hill, a sophisticated area replete with antique shops and inviting English pubs.

    See houses formerly inhabited by Sylvia Plath, Ted Hughes, and Frederick Engels, and purchase wine and cheese from artisan shops before you ascend to the summit of Primrose Hill to enjoy panoramic vistas of London’s most famous landmarks.

    Then, follow your guide back to Camden Town and receive recommendations for live music venues and bars. Your tour concludes back at Camden Town underground station.

    Beth my tour guide was very well prepared for the tour, had great ideas of exploring Camden Town and had interesting details to point out. The market was packed and Beth managed to help see the market without letting the crowds interfere.
