Not to be confused with Camden Market, Camden Passage is in Islington adjacent to Upper Street,(just behind Byron Burgers). An abundance of antique shops, retro shops, unusual jewellery. A little gem not to be missed. The Camden Head pub with food and nightly free comedy. Fredericks restaurant for a special treat or for everyday try the ever popular Breakfast Club... More

...that could not be more ISLINGTON if it tried, with varied shops selling an array of expensive wares. Nice to walk down and window shop though and near to a few good pubs.

Been here several times. It hosts a market on certain days, so check locally as it is worth a visit as you can find some really unusual pieces here. If the market is not open there are a few interesting shops where you can pick up some unique pieces too as well as enjoying a drink or coffee at one... More

I visited once whilst on a trip to London. I was choosing wool for my wife to knit me a hat (surprise for her). The staff were excellent, very patient and really sweet. Loads of quality products. Recently I emailed them for advise regarding sock yarn to order over the internet as a xmas present. Camille responded really quick with... More

Wow! Newly revamped and beautiful modern market with real gems (both literally and figuratively speaking)! Great array of antique jewellery, clothing and cutlery and modern stuff too, including fab posters!

While the number of vendors has decreased over the years this is still a place where you can find some treasures at a good price. There are excellent antique silver and wooden box shops.

We went 6.30 on a Thursday evening, ahead of going to a show. Too late for the early evening menu, which was a bit odd, but we had a taste card, so got 2 for 1 on the a la carte, which was great as if meant we could savour the delights the main menu. Guinea fowl for my partner... More

Went last week with group of friends for lunch. We had the 3 course lunch menu which was very good value and sat in the garden under canopy. The service was very good and nice friendly waiters who couldn't do enough for you. There was a choice of 2 or 3 per course and all was beautifully present and delicious.m... More

I am a local so visit all the time - Paul A. Young's chocolate is fantastic - ice cream too in the summer - and Kipferl is my favourite cafe, but lots to do and eat. Especially pretty at Christmas!

I love walking down this area but rarely venture into any shop or cafe. Looks great but not really worth the hype. In my opinion Smug is the best shop along here selling cute homewares and gifts but it is very pricey.
