Discover one of London's most vibrant and popular neighbourhoods


Camden was a poor suburb in the 1970s, and artists and musicians took advantage of the cheap rents to live, sell their wears from market stalls and play concerts. So the market grew and today Camden is the second place people visit after seeing the main sights in central London.

Camden Town is a famously colourful neighbourhood known for its music scene in the 70s (Pink Floyd, Cream), 90s (Oasis, Blur, Pulp) and present day (recently the home of tragic singer Amy Winehouse). I'll show you the history, the street art scene and the buzzing Camden Market.

We'll also walk through the surrounding neighbourhood. In London, you can turn a corner and the atmosphere completely changes. We'll walk through old streets rich in literary history (Charles Dickens lived here) and so pretty, they've featured in many feature films lately ('Paddington' for example).

The area gets so busy I'm unable to do this tour on the weekend. But if you're here on a weekday, I look forward to showing you around!

Itinerary

We'll meet at your hotel, or other agreed location in London.
During the tour we'll visit:

- Camden market
- The backstreets of Camden Town
- The Roundhouse, where Eric Clapton and other rockstars launched their careers
- The Dublin Castle pub, where Amy Winehouse launched her career
- Regent's Park
- Regent's Canal
- The panoramic view of London from Primrose Hill
- The backstreets of Primrose Hill

At the end, we'll finish back at your hotel, or other agreed upon spot.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I'll meet you at your hotel (or any other convenient location). We'll then make our way to Camden to begin the tour.

End location: The tour will end in Camden. There are nice locations around here for lunch, including the market, or the guide can escort you back to your hotel (or anywhere else you'd like to go).

Duration: 3 hours

This tour usually takes less than 3 hours.

Transportation

We'll take a traditional London Black Cab to Central London, from there the whole tour is walkable. We'll then go back to your hotel via Black Cab. So all necessities are included in the cost of this tour.

What’s Included

Local tour guide and Black Cab rides to and from your accommodation is included in the cost of this tour, so every necessity is taken care of.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

50 £ - This is a short walk, so no refreshments are included in the tour. You might want to buy refreshments or have lunch after the tour. And you might want to spend some money on crafts, clothing and street food in the market.

What’s Extra

Any personal purchases or expenses such as extra refreshments or souvenirs.

This tour is priced for up to 4 people, but I can accommodate larger groups of up to 9. Please contact me for the details and a quote.

Restrictions

I'm not a driver guide but can arrange transportation on request.

I'm an outdoor walking tour guide and don't specialize in going inside places of interest such as Westminster Abbey.
