Come along with me...Camden


Recently I made my first trip to Camden Town, a lot of people talk about it and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about! I was surprised at how delicate and pretty the area was, I assumed it all to be market stalls. I was also pleasantly surprised to see an Arts and Crafts market where small businesses were selling their handmade goods; it was great to speak to fellow designers and buy their products. 

We were stumbling over places to eat, the area is filled with continental food stalls and the aroma is AMAZING. It may sound boring..but I opted for Fish and Chips, 'you go all that way and have fish and chips?!' yes I know but it was sold in a newspaper cone and looked so good, how could I not?! After, I bought the most delicious chocolate brownie known to man...just look at them! Great British Bake Off worthy I'd say. To wash the tastes away I drank a floral cold tea, never really tried something like this before but it tasted very sweet and a nice summery alternative to normal tea (the man also promised me it has health benefits...) 

After our stroll through the markets, canals and gift stalls we headed back along the High street. I was amazed by the fact that these original buildings had a modern twist on their fronts.  Large sculptures covered the bold  brickwork, making every single one different. I thought it was a great quirky addition to the street. 

Have any of you visited Camden before?
