Another visit to my favourite tourist spot back in August 2021 – Camden Town.
Camden is a riot of colourful street art, hectic markets, tourist tat, drunks, street hustlers and all of life lived large.
It’s a place I can revisit time and time again (and do!) because it is just so much fun. Whether you think it’s a tacky tourist trap, a colourful amusement park or just a break from the norm, Camden is always a must for me.
Camden’s markets are legendary, and for good reason, whether you’re after pin badges, iconic artwork or just enjoy people watching, there’ s something for everyone.
A quick head waggle at the neon hellishness that is Cyber Dog . . .
Before a ramble around some more of the eclectic market offerings.
We then wander off along one of the waterways that appear out of nowhere like green arteries in a clogged heart.
This is Regents Canal. Completed in 1820, it was built too close to the start of the railway age to be financially successful and at one stage the Regent’s only narrowly escaped being turned into a railway.
But it survived, and is now a busting hub of water based activity and a leisurely place to stroll and get some much needed peace after the mania of Camden.
Below is the Feng Shang Princess – floating red pagoda that is also a restaurant!
