I again run a little bit behind with last weeks photo challenge of the Daily Post, so apologies for that! Nonetheless, I still wanted to share it with you anyway, so here we go…
The topic for the challenge was ‘favourite place’ which instantly made me think of Camden in London 🙂 I absolutely love this place and it is definitely one of my favourites with lots of great memories and where I’ll always have a special time!
Camden is located in North-West London and was founded in 1965. Named after Charles Pratt, the first Earl of Camden in 1795, Camden Town offers a mix of markets, cuisines and live music venues. Having many of the legendary clubs, pubs and venues such as the KOKO, Electric Ballroom, Underworld or Camden Assembly, it is a hub for London’s alternative music scene. Different markets such as the Camden Lock and Stable market are located next to the Regent Canal and the railway system which was turned into a vivid and lively part of London. The area being the fourth most popular visitor attraction in London doesn’t only attract around 100.000 visitors and tourists per week but also serves as a home for stars such as Amy Winehouse. Beginning as a small crafts market in 1974, the market now turned into a complex labyrinth of open air stalls and shops, offering different culinary foods, crafts, jewellery, books, arts, second-hand articles and clothing.
It is a lovely place with all its diverse, cultural, vivid and colourful charm, as well as the alternative scene, and definitively is one of my favourite places to be along with Carnaby Street!
