Tourists flock to Camden Town’s locks, market and music venues

The locks, market and iconic music venues in Camden Town add some rock and roll grit and glamour to the otherwise genteel borough of Camden. A magnet for alternative muscial cultures for many decades, Camden Town has enjoyed a facelift over the past few years.

The old market was demolished and replaced by the Hawley Wharf redevelopment programme in 2015. A good selection of other new or refurbished homes have also appeared in greater numbers in the area since.
