Camden is perhaps best known for its markets, namely Buck Street Market, Camden Lock market, Inverness Street Market and Stables market. Camden Lock is the most popular and, although originally a craft market, it specialises in clothing, second hand clothing and jewellery.

Camden is a buzzing area and has an endless list of attractions for all to enjoy. London Zoo opened in 1828, although it was 1847 before it was open to the public, and today houses nearly 700 species of animal many of them rare breeds. The zoo is located in Regents Park which is also home to a lake, sports facilities and a variety of special gardens.

By night, Camden is still a buzzing community and the Electric Ballroom has played host to many well known rock bands, musicians and events the UK Air Guitar championships were held here in 2004. Other popular venues include the Devonshire Arms and The Black Cape. Centrally located, the borough of Camden boasts several underground stations and is also well placed for bus services too. The popularity of this thriving borough is reflected in its cost of living, with rented accommodation proving expensive.
