Camden: So much more than just markets

Camden: So much more than just markets

If you're contemplating immersing yourself into the very heart of London, you'd be foolish not to consider Camden.

With a vibrant atmosphere and quirky arts scene, there's something for everyone in the very heart of the capital.

The markets may instantly spring to mind when you think of Camden - and for good reason. 

Having started more than 30 years ago, they've stood the test of time through recessions and cutbacks, but is still standing. It's open pretty much every day of the year, meaning whenever you fancy a browse for something a bit unusual, it'll be there for you.

Camden boasts so much more than its impressive markets though. With stunning views of London courtesy of Primrose Hill, Regent's Canal and Swiss Cottage Library, you won't run out of activities for your Saturday afternoons.

Property for sale in Camden might initially appear a little pricey, but you are paying to be in the midst of everything that's going on.

If you enjoy scouting new talent and hearing artists before everyone else does, you can enjoy the four-week Camden Fringe. 2014 will be its tenth year, while there were more than 180 productions last year in 17 venues across the borough. 

What's more, there's a plethora of venues and events just waiting for you to discover, such as bars, acoustic nights and poetry recitals. 

The great thing about being a local in Camden, however, is that you'll be able to find niche, off-the-beaten-track pubs and restaurants that you won't find anywhere else in the world. 

In terms of education, there's an abounding number of primary and secondary schools, while the Underground means it's easy to commute to one of the many universities the capital boasts.

Camden is well-served with its own tube station, meaning you can easily live there and commute to a different part of London for your day job. 

The borough of Camden has so much to offer, but make sure you dedicate the time to make the most of it! ADNFCR-1222-ID-801710955-ADNFCR
