Chalk Farm Road, NW1
Nearest Tube: Camden Town
Next to this is the Camden Lock Market, which is held in a cobbled courtyard that leads to the canal. It is here that the market first started and so it is this part of the market that is the Camden Market proper. This is where the arts, crafts and ethnic clothes that the market is famous for are sold. It is also the most popular part of the market, where the crowds are at their heaviest.
|This huge market in Camden Town is held on Chalk Farm Road and the surrounding area. It stretches between Camden Town Tube Station in the south and Hawley Street in the north. This is probably the best known of London's markets - it attracts over 100,000 shoppers every weekend.
It is essentially several markets in one, made up of the Camden Canal Market, the Camden Lock Market, the Stables Market, and the Electric Market.
The part of the market that centres around Buck Street near Camden Town Tube is known as the Camden Canal Market. This is where you can find lots of new and second-hand clothing. This part opens from Thursday-Sunday.
In the northern end of the market is the Stables Market where you can find antiques, second hand books and records, and furniture. Close by is the Electric Market, held in an old ballroom, which sells clothing and jewellery and which is open only on Sundays.
Some stalls stay open all week, but in general the market is open weekends from 8am-6pm. As in any crowded area, keep an eye on your belongings and be wary of pickpockets.
