Camden Town & Kentish Town Street Views in London, England
Camden Town in London, most famous for the Camden Lock Market is a very eccentric place. Vendors line up inside and outside the market. There are goods, food, and just about everything you can imagine that is handcrafted or an antique. Their website claims they get 28 million visitors annually. It might be true since they're open everyday except for Christmas Day. The energy you feel in this part of town is unparalleled.
Kentish Town is a bit sleepier, family oriented, a quick 20 minute bus ride away from the city center. Having lived in Kentish Town for a bit and being a short distance away from Camden Town, I made the journey often to the market to soak in the hustle and bustle of the market. When I returned to England in 2016, I was able to snap a few pictures to remind me of those walks.

Camden Town is where the Northern Line splits and forks towards two different directions. You can get on the High Barnet line and get off at Kentish Town to walk down to Camden, or take the Edgware line to get off at Chalk Farm and walk towards Camden. Or you can simply get off at Camden if you don't want to walk. The market is very busy so you must be ok with crowds.
