Camden Market is a huge market, covering almost the whole neighbourhood and it can take hours to explore. Camden Town is a sea of entertainment. It overflows with a variety of colourful restaurants, bars, pubs, clubs, theatres and cinemas. The Camden Market attracts enormous Londoners and tourists alike.
The History of Camden Market
The Camden Lock Market, by the canal, was the original craft market, established in 1975. This market soon began to attract large numbers of Londoners and tourists alike, because of the character and quality of the goods on sale and because of the uniqueness of the location. Boat trips and walks along the canal, or just watching the barges pass through the lock gates from the Dingwall's beer garden, became, and still are important parts of the attraction of Camden Lock.
In 1990 many of the buildings at the Lock were renovated and a new market Hall with three floors of small shops and other businesses, were built over one of the previous open market areas of stalls next to the main road.
