About Camden Town
Camden Town is the district of London, England around Camden High Street, in the London Borough of Camden post code NW1. It is also referred to as Camden. Camden Town is an inner-city district located on the northern side of the City of London.
It is famous for its crowded markets and its associations with popular culture, from the 1960’s when the Roundhouse was a centre of alternative culture, and later associations with punk and Goth subcultures. The ‘town’ in the name is 18th century usage indicating a new development area: Camden is not separated in any way from the adjoining areas. The Regent’s Canal runs through the north end of Camden Town; its 8.5 mile towpath, which passes through London Zoo, is a pleasant and popular walk in summer. Boat trips along the canal, from Camden Lock, are also interesting. Many of the handrails by the bridges show deep marks worn by the towropes by which horses pulled canal barges until the 1950s, and there are still underwater ramps to assist horses which have bolted due to the overrunning railway bridges and fallen in. One of the many canal bridges, Macclesfield bridge, is known as “Blow-up bridge”: it was the site of London’s largest pre-war explosion, where a barge laden with gunpowder blew up in 1874.
Camden Lock is a traditional manually-operated double canal lock operating between widely separated levels. A large complex of weekend street markets has mushroomed there since the 1970s. Not far away is Regent’s Park, a large and pleasant park which was formerly Henry VIII’s hunting chase. There are spectacular rose gardens in bloom in the spring, a boating lake, always-hungry ducks and geese, several children’s playgrounds and London Zoo is at the north of the park. Camden is well-known for its markets: these are of relatively recent date, except for Inverness Street market, a small food market serving the local community, though now with only 3 fruit and vegetable stalls. Among the many other stalls, Camden Lock market proper started in a former timber yard in 1973, and is now surrounded by satellites: Buck Street market, Stables market, Camden Canal market, and an indoor market in the Electric Ballroom. The whole area has been successfully re-developed, has achieved world wide notoriety and is now the capital’s largest tourist attractions.
Euston Station and it’s surrounding area is referred to as part of Camden Town by some, as it is North of the Marylebone Road, generally regarded as the border. The Large housing estate Somers Town, is also sometimes referred to as Camden, although others refer to this area as Kings Cross . Read more…
