“Fun place to visit and browse”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

An interesting place to visit and browse the market stalls and grab some street food. More variety to the market stalls than you might think. Can get very crowded near the entrance by the canal but take it slowly, walk inside and you can soon lose the bulk of the crowds.

“Nice and calm walk”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Great place to have a nice walk after a visit on the Stables Market. This path takes you to the Regents Park, which is absolutely gorgeous on spring. Visit the Queen Mary's Garden.

“Lovely end to an amazing weekend”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Having had an action packed weekend in London, my friend insisted we finish off with Camden Lock & the market. I was amazed at the sheer number of different world food stalls about (I wish I hadn't just eaten or I would have tried them all)! There's a real buzz about the place and there are hundreds of stalls selling clothes, souveneirs, ornaments, jewellry, household items, and everything else you can think of. We had a good look around a small portion of the market (we had a train to catch or could have spent at least a full day round there), got some food, and just sat on the edge of the Lock with many people, feet hanging over the edge watching the canal boats pass. It was bliss!

“Great walk if you have some spare time”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Liked: scenic walks along the canal from Regents Park to Camden locks with many quirky houseboats, people chilling or playing music. Endpoint is the Camden locks market, vibrant and a great place to visit.

Disliked: the path along the canal is very narrow and you're often scared to bits because bicycles come up behind you and suddenly pass by very closely.

“Weird and Beautiful”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

This area is extremely picturesque and I really loved visiting it. It's both weird and beautiful and it's literally filled with food stands. It is also a great place for "off-the-beaten" shopping. If you enjoy the rock, Gothic or hippie styles, then this is the place you should go. It's definitely worth a visit while in London.
