London, a city with so much to offer to tourists including London Eye, Madam Tussauds, Tower of London and pretty much museums for everything has many city markets and shopping complexes that continue to attract a large number of visitors. A unique attraction amongst these is the Camden Town Market.
The culture of Camden is as colourful and vibrant as it can be, being the birth place of alternate culture. Camden Market is broadly broken into several smaller ones; Stable Market, Lock Market, Lock Village, Buck Street Market and Inverness Streets.
From alternate fashion to vintage clothing, bottles to footwear, Stable Market is a treasure trove. An old horse hospital in this area of Camden Market has been converted to a club called Proud Camden. Once you’ve done shopping at Stable Market switch over to Lock Market for your pick of accessories and paintings, prints and anything else you need for home décor. You can also find all kinds of books, music, records and films at the Lock Market.
Camden Lock Village can’t really be categorized as selling certain kind of things. The market has cloths, accessories, drum specialists and even a glass engraver. Buck Street can be compared to a road full of jumble sales, where exploration is the best possible way to shop. While Inverness Street originally housed fruit and vegetable stalls, today there are clothing and footwear shops as well. This was the original Camden Market and still has quite a few old fashioned bars and restaurants.
In complete contrast to Camden Market are the lodging choices available around the place. Budget accommodations are available but for those of you who are looking for something more, why not consider the many London serviced apartments. In particular, the Ascott Mayfair London is a dwelling that adds more charm to your vacation with its 1920 architecture. It is the ideal choice for those looking for the perfect luxury service apartment in London. If you want to experience alit bit of London’s history, then don’t forget to visit Buckingham Palace, The London Dungeon and Trafalgar Square, all within easy access from the Ascott Mayfair.
