Camden Market

Camden Market, also called Camden Lock, which is located in the Borough Camden is one of London’s best attractions. The market is famous for its extraordinary looking shops and for its great variety of products. Camden Market has been ranked as London’s fourth-largest attraction because there are 100.000 people visiting the stalls and shops each weekend. An interesting fact is that the market actually consists of six markets. Camden Lock market, which was founded in 1974, Stables Market, which is the biggest one, Camden Canal Market, which was destroyed by a fire in 2008, Buck Street Market, Electric Ballroom, where concerts take place and Inverness Street, which is famous for its pubs and bars.
Camden Lock isn’t only popular among tourists, even media companies like MTV or AP have their studios located in this area. Even the German TV channel RTL owns a studio there.

But what can you do in this area of London? The products sold are crafts, clothing, bric-a-brac and fast food. So you don’t have to be interested in fashion to have a nice day there. If you like to try food from around the world you’re definitely right in this area of London. In my opinion the market is definitely unusual and most people from other European countries aren’t used to markets like that but I guess that’s exactly the reason why the market is that popular. My final thought is that Camden Market is an amazing sight, which everyone who visits London should have seen.
