A place travelers can visit Camden Market
Reviews: Camden Market
General description: Camden MarketThe old favourite, Camden Market, is back in fashion: grunge alongside modern, amusing trends in design: clothing, jewellery and Doc Martens. Enjoy mixing with London's punks and Goths - you can relax over a coffee or smoothie with a view of the canal.
A breif history of Camden Market
Camden lock was a busy place for the shipping business till it died out. This meant there were lots of big storage warehouses that were left empty when the boats left. It was into this space that in the 1970s the original Camden Market was born, as an arts and craft market. Since then it has blossomed and grown and now attracts crowds from all over the world and so has become a tourist attraction as well as a market.
