Review of Camden Market, London

Camden market, as the name suggests, is a market located in Camden, North London. It was established in 1974 with roughly 16 stalls. However, there are now hundreds of unique stalls pitched around the area, so you will always find something to enjoy. That’s why its one of the most well-known markets in the world. Camden market is best known for its wide variety of delicious food, ranging from a fairy tale candy shop named Hansel and Gretel, to appetizing Thai street food that you can eat in little glass igloos. But I believe you can get a full stomach by just walking around and trying the free tasters.

The market is like a labyrinth with directions, so you’ll always find yourself in a new alleyway with fascinating decoration like “floating” umbrellas above you and one-of-a-kind products such as posters, clothing shops, jewellery, crystals, collectibles, vintage items and hand-made paintings. And if you feel highly adventurous, you can even get your piercings done.

If you are trying to find a way from Richmond station to Camden town, you can use the London Overground towards Stratford and get off at Kentish Town West; from there it’s a five-minute stroll to the entrance of the market. It is marked by a big sign announcing the market's name. This is a great weekend activity that opens at 10 am and closes at 7pm and you can find basically anything you like for a good price.
