Moving to Camden
Born and raised in what to me is the heart of London, Camden Town has become one of the trendiest places to live in London. Famous for its culture Camden Town is known for its vibrant markets, music venues and vast selection of bars and pubs drawing in visitors from all over the world.
Whether you are a young professional, group of friends looking for a space to share or a growing family, Camden offers some of the best places to live. From Victorian and Georgian terraces perfect for growing families and large converted warehouses perfect for creative types, you will be certain to find the perfect place to call home.
Food and drink
It would be impossible to talk about Camden and not mention the amazing food on offer. With the diverse culture even the fussiest eater will be spoilt for choice. Nestled in Camden market there are a range of street food stalls offering authentic BBQ grub to freshly made curries and in more recent years vast selection of vegan and healthy options. With restaurants lined up along the canal if you’re looking for somewhere to sit down Gino D’Acampo’s restaurant is a must with its freshy made Italian food. And don’t forget desserts, from waffles to ice cream made in front of your eyes with liquid nitrogen at the Chin Chin Café.
Camden market offers an eclectic mix of stalls selling vintage wares, hand-crafted gifts and everything in between.
“Crafty Kaya” based in the East Yard is ran by Kaya who has been hand crafting her delicate jewellery from the age of 12. https://www.camdenmarket.com/shops/crafty-kaya--handmade-unique-flower-jewellery

Another perk of Living in Camden is the transport links. With buses taking you into the surrounding areas of West Hampstead, Chalk Farm, Primrose Hill and Kilburn you are never too far from anywhere. With the Northern line running from both Camden and Chalk Farm you can commute into the city in under 20 minutes.
