Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops
as well as for an embrace of all things counter
culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of
London street life. From bargain shopping and people
watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs
and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a
Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live
music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High
