    I love markets and this one it's amazing one. There are lot of shops with so many different thing,actually more than you can imagine. It's impossible just to look around, for sure something will catch your eyes and you'll buy few things. I always find there some "treasure".

    A great taste of alternative London, with just about anything you can imagine for sale (and not that expensive, as well). Camden in a very nice place to relax, have a meal and, of course, go shopping for the not so sought tourist stuff. Really enjoyable!

    Like always Camden market especially on a lovely sunny day is totally thronged with people from everywhere you could imagine. Has all the usual stalls and things you'd expect from a market but plenty of different interested ones not usually found and a fantastic selection of food stalls sampling great food from around the world...prepare to be hustled and bustled and keep your belongings safe !!!

    Had so much fun at the market. There were unique finds and tons of little shops to explore. It was crowded, but that added to the fun. I would highly recommend for anyone traveling to London.

    One of the best places to visit while in London. Enjoyed my day out. Great street food. Lots of choices. It is quite expensive for street food but they all taste very good and different. Market is very nice and people are very friendly. you can easily spend a whole day here with little bit shopping, having some lunch / dinner and few beers at a pub. Must see.

    Camden Market is the place to shop when visiting London. You can get all your souvenirs in one spot! They've got a lovely food court as well. There are tons of shops and some of it gets recitative so shop around until you find the best deal!

    Craft based market in a small set of old warehouse buildings by the canal. Plenty of tourist tat, but also some good stuff in there too, including a couple of music stalls. Pleasant to wander around.
