The Christmas holidays are upon us! And this year, there’s a lot of making up to do for last year’s lockdown festivities.

We’ve compiled the best ways to entertain the entire family in Camden Market Hawley Wharf this year, whether you’re after an arty day out or a cosy cinema screening.


To Home From London

Pancake. Art. Café. Are there three words any more delightful? To Home From London is a celebration of all things colourful, joyful and delicious, and their bespoke pancake menu is a sight to behold. Simply choose a design (Santa, a snowman and Christmas trees are all featuring on their festive menu!) and watch as it’s created and cooked in front of your eyes.

To Home From London on Water Lane and opens Sunday – Thursday 11-6pm, Friday – Saturday 11-7pm


Curzon Camden

The sweet smell of popcorn and luxurious velvet upholstery greet you when you walk through the doors of Curzon in Hawley Wharf. With five cosy screens under the railway arches, drinks delivered to your seat and pizzas served all day, their screenings of blockbusters, classics and art films mean there’s a show for everyone.

Curzon Camden is on Dockray Place and opens 30 mins before first showing, and closes at midnight or 11.30 on Sundays.


Josiah Amari

It might not be Santa’s workshop, but Josiah Amari is still stacked high with toys, books, clothes and handmade gifts alongside a mini Christmas grotto. A warm, welcoming store where local makers are celebrated, Josiah Amari is a perfect stop where you can get into the Christmas spirit, let little ones explore and keep an eye out for last minute goodies.

Josiah Amari is on Water Lane and opens Monday – Thursday 11am-6pm, Friday -Sunday 11am-7pm


Stilvi Café

Looking for a sweet treat? Warm up with a luscious hot chocolate from Stilvi Café, handmade each day from thick, melted Belgian chocolate and topped with cream, chocolate sauce, marshmallows and sprinkles. Take in the canal-side views and sip on this chocolatey dream.

Stilvi Café is in Waterside Halls West in Hawley Wharf, just off Camden High Street, and opens from 9am.
