Camden is one of London’s most exciting areas, with a great live music scene, pub culture and of course the famous Camden Locke Market. In the daytime, browse the stalls for comedy t-shirts, gothic shoes, vintage clothes and arts and crafts before descending on the food stalls offering world cuisine. For a taste of British cuisine, try the freshly made fish and chips, or indulge your sweet tooth with the colourful displays of nougat and sugar coated Spanish churros with a choice of dulce de leche or chocolate filling. In the evening, head to either Koko or Proud, both historic music venues, with a busy events calendar that continues to draw the crowds. The latter used to be a hospital for lame horses, so there are plenty of stables turned booths where you can catch up with friends, and a large outside area to boot.
London is one of the best destinations for shopping, so take advantage of the array of shops on offer and explore the likes of Covent Garden and Oxford Circus. The former is known for its street performers, which continue to amaze locals and tourists alike, whilst the latter is home to the flagship Topshop and Nike stores. If shopping isn’t on the agenda, then London has an abundance of free museums and galleries to enjoy. For history, the British Museum contains some of the world’s oldest and rare objects, including the famous Rosetta stone, Egyptian mummies and a North American totem pole. The National Gallery, in Trafalgar Square, contains an enormous collection of paintings from Western Europe, dating back to the 13th century. The gallery also hosts free live music concerts weekly so be sure to check out what’s on during your stay.
