Leather, studs, and combat boots are common apparel in Camden Town, an alternative oasis away from the prestige of royalty and Parliament. More often than not, Camden Town’s building facades feature politically charged commentary and saturated hues that pay homage to Pop art. You don’t have to question authority to enjoy this north London neighborhood—Camden Town’s numerous pubs, music venues, and street markets exude invitingly creative atmospheres.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood

Brought up near London, she has lived in the city for almost 20 years, and loves to explore its varied neighbourhoods.
