About the tour

This one and a half hour tour will begin with a brief history of the area, from the time when highwaymen would stalk the Hampstead Road and move on to discuss how Camden became a boom town in the railway era.

We will then talk about some famous faces who have called Camden home, including the likes of Charles Dickens and of course, Amy Winehouse.

Camden has however also been witness to some rather turbulent times, such as in the 1920s when the Camden Town Gang fought rival gangs in the Camden pubs and Camden's very existence threatened by a planned road through its very heart.

Camden nowadays is famous for its market, or rather markets which sell almost everything one could imagine, including excellent food from every corner of the globe. It is of course impossible to do a tour in Camden without talking about Camden's role in the music scene, from Rock and Roll to Britpop, Camden has it all.

So come here with an open mind and an empty stomach and enjoy this incredible area with us!

Seguramente ha debido ser maravilloso. Lamentablemente me he sentido indispuesta y no he podido acudir
